I think there is an assumption that anyone using large format wants a super sharp picture with a ton of depth of field but why assume that? I only use large format for the tone. Depth of field is meaningless to me. Look at Corran's image of the painter above. That is typical of what you shoot when you want to handhold a camera. The great thing about the Polaroid conversions is you can easily take an image like that. I have had sharp results holding the camera down to 1/8 of a second; I just rest the camera on my shoulder. It is the only camera with which I can do that and still focus and see what I am shooting. The camera is not as fast to use as a Mamiya 7 though so I would still say most everyone would be better off with a Mamiya.
