Mamiya makes incredibly sharp lenses. I love my Mamiya 7 but they are spendy. Check ebay
It's less like a smaller format SLR, but I absolutely love shooting with my hasselblad.
Dave Hill has been shooting a lot with his Mamiya 6 on the past couple of shoots I've assisted and the results are absolutely stunning! I'd check eBay. I got my Hasselblad kit for $800 last year so you never know what you'll find.
I picked up my Hasselblad for a lot cheaper then I thought I was going to and a bunch of extras with it. The price that most people are asking for are set off of each other so every now and then you can find someone who is basically giving one away, just depends on how long you want to wait for it. I looked or about a year when I stumbled on mine. Now I love it to death!
I have fallen for the Mamiya RB67, which is definitely a different operation than 35mm slr (operates more like an abrams tank) but the big format and inexpensive sharp lenses are awesome. The Mamiya 7 is a better option for quicker operation but they are expensive!
