Each one has its own purpose.
#10
When I looked through your initial list of "must haves" in your opening post, I thought indeed the only way to cover the "not too expensive" requirement was for you to go for film. It wasn't till I got to the end that I realised you had actually bought the 'Blad!
Congratulations my man!
Am delighted you didn't go "niche" and do the "anti-hero/smug-mac-user" dying swan of getting a Holga!
Until I realised you'd actually bought the Hasselblad, I was going to suggest the Fuji GSWII either in its 6x7 or 6x9 incarnation: extremely light, rhinoceros-build and optically ripping. Also, any "accessorising path" is either maddeningly or satisfactorily curtailed.
Mind you, for that matter, knowing that you are also attracted by "rendering" quality of a lens rather than outright acuity, I wouldn't have put it past you to go for a Leica...but "not too expensive" gets eaten away pretty quickly when you pop a lens on....so, Fuji I would have betted on(a small sum, albeit!)
