Good camera.  I also have a 'Cord V and like it very
much.  It's been my workhorse camera and I used it to
make most of my MF B&W and color shots.  I highly
recommend the Maxwell Matte screen for it.  It's easy
to install.  For film, I'm mostly a B&W person but
would definately take Velvia and RDP III along.  If
you don't like slides, then maybe Reala and NPC?  For
B&W, why not try Acros 100?  Or stay with your more
familiar emulsions of you don't feel like testing it. 
Also, FP4+ in PMK does kick butt.  I don't know why I
haven't used more of it.  One of my favorites is still
TX in PMK at EI 250.  I've bought most of my film from
either B&H or Adorama so they should be competitive
price wise.  Have fun and scan in some of your
favorites to show us if you get the chance! :-)
