Need advice concenring MF choice to make

Which camera you suggest as a not too heavy digital substitute for a 6x17 film camera?

My goal: to make fantastic looking cropped prints on 17 x 51 inch paper (as I have been doing from my 617 scanned trannies).

1 inch = 2.54cm, so that's about prints at the size of ca. 45 x 150cm. Or even bigger.

I have gotten OK results from 180dpi, better at 240dpi and above printing resolutions.

Are the 50MP choices of Fuji or Hasselblad, etc. enough?

I think the GFX 100 is overkill, also in weight and bulk, although very tempting in terms of IQ, but also a wallet ripper.

Thanks in advance.

some samples

My own foremost candidate at the moment: Fuji GFX 50R with either the 50mm "pancake" or the widest 23mm lens.
