EOS 1v or MF

A late model EOS for film, like the 1v would make sense, since you have Canon lenses. $4-500 should do it nicely. If you want to spend more, there's always medium format. Contax 645 is great and has AF, but it's expensive too. The Mamiya 7 likewise and lacks AF. I consider one of the Fuji "Texas Leicas" for some of my own work, the GW670/680/690. They are dirt cheap but deliver fantastic image quality.

Another cheap alternative is a Contax RX (35mm) with a couple of Zeiss lenses. A fantastic camera that used to cost a fortune but now costs $2-300. Lenses tend to be expensive though.

Here's a recent image taken with the RX and Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 on Ilford Delta 100

I see that you have OM-lenses. Then, an OM-2 or 4 would obviously make sense as well.
