The C220 is less expensive and excellent. The black rather than silver lenses are more recent and also excellent. I don't have any experience with the C3/33/2, but I can't imagine the C220 is that much more costly. Good luck.

Oh...I should add that my wife used a YashicaMat for some time and had a good experience with it. The lens is not interchangeable, as the Mamiyas are, but I'd consider it over a Lubitel.
