Have you considered focusing?
I have tried to use a Hasselblad 501CM outside and it is a pain to even
focus!! My quick focusing lever was broken (the rubber pad was lost) so I
had to actually turn the focusing ring. Maybe you can improve on it but I
felt very clumsy with it. The mirror flapping will herald your action to
anyone on the block, so you will lose the spontaneity of anything but the
TLR is a lot faster focusing and it is a lot easier to use with a prism
and grip because you don;t have the back sticking in your face, either
