I haven't posted much and I haven't looked at the responses yet, but I would suggest the Hasselblad system. They're relatively small and weigh as much as a DSLR with a f/1.4 prime lens or fast zoom attached. You can pick up a 500 c/m kit pretty cheap. There are some things you need to look out for, though. The back might have light leaks because they're old, the shutters may be worn in the lenses (easily remedied with another lens), or the inserts might not match the film back (the film won't be as flat as it could be). They're relatively loud when the shutter is tripped so discrete street photography is out.
