I put together just such a kit from KEH years ago for around $500 (w/ the old style back) and had excellent results w/ it. The 'blad did not suit my style of shooting, but I appreciated the camera, once I figured out all of the interlocks! Mine had the old focus screen w/ the circle spot in the middle and I liked it just fine (I'm 62 and wear bifocals). My chrome 80 Planar was not as sharp as the Rolleiflex cameras I was used to, but it was plenty sharp enough, and had a nice way of imaging. I even tried a reflex prism in an attempt to shoot it like a 35mm camera and it was a lot of fun, although a side grip would have really helped. One thing to mention is that these cameras get a LOT more attention on the street than a TLR.
You will do well to start w/ the camera and lens that you stated, and I always recommend KEH for just about anything photographic. These are old cameras, but I've had good results just shooting them w/o an expensive CLA or anything, knock on wood.
The testers Alan mentioned are very good, but I make do w/ a $40 one and it's on the money. If you have the time you can bracket, keep notes, and figure it out w/o a tester, but that's not necessarily a lot of fun.
