Those were important factors in my mind. Your mileage may vary.
Ed,
I can't speak to the other Bronica models but my ETRS will default to a preset shutter speed if the battery fails. To be honest I would need to refer to the manual to determine what that speed is. I have never had a battery failure occur in the middle of a session and so I have never had to rely on that knowledge. My mind is to darned cluttered with insignificant garbage as it is.

The Bronica does have the consideration of lenses dedicated to a format.
