Christmas Time upgrades...

This picture doesn't belong to me. I'll let you know who it belongs to as soon as I can figure that out for myself. 

It's that time of year again, and I'm getting the itch to increase my camera collection. Around Christmas time, you see a lot of people selling old equipment to raise funds for holiday purchases and its the perfect time to check out pawnshops and Craigslist for deals on used equipment. Right now, I'm pretty happy with my digital arsenal, but I would like to get break into the medium format digital market with a digital back for my current Mamiya. I'm also considering getting a used Hasselblad system with a digital back. On the film front, I'm looking at some more serious TLR's such as Rolliecords or maybe a Yashica 124-G. Both are excellent cameras that are available around $100-$300 used. I might even trade some of my current gear. Who knows? I've been using my good friend Matt Druin's new Fuji X100T and its a beast and a beauty, but the price tag is a bit too hefty right now for a fixed lens camera. What do you guys think? Should I go for the digital medium format, the TLRs, or the newer Fuji X100T?
