What I would do is this -
Buy an N80.......
Take the rest of your cash and........

Don't buy a Hassy.
Take that cash and buy something else. Used.

I suggest the Bronica ETR system.

I mean, you could easily get $1,000ish for a lens or two and an F5 body (depending on condition....) and get an MF starter AND a good film back-up body for the D100.
If you are not considering the LF option I believe Robert Kennedy's advice is spot on. That is what I would do if I were going down that road.
