  I think the first question should be "what's your intended usage?"

  You mentioned fast lenses; that implies to me you want to shoot some
available-darkness. There are other cameras that while the fastest lens may
be a stop slower they're much better for that sort of work.
  If you just want a MF SLR but don't care about leaf shutters, include the
Rollei SL-66 in your list.
  If you just want a good MF camera and don't really care about
interchangeable lenses, it's hard to be a Rolleiflex.
