Was discussing with colleagues recently, which of the still available (albeit secondhand) film cameras are set to become regarded as "classics" of their time? We only discussed film cameras, since the digital stuff comes with built in obsolesance. We disregarded Leica M series, since they have already achieved the "classic" status, and are priced accordingly. The Nikon F and FM2n were immediate contenders, both being "pure" mechanical models that leave all the technical decisions to the photographer; if those decisions of composition, exposure, lens choice, film development are all perfect, then these two cameras are so well engineered, they will translate these actions into superb pictures and last a lifetime.. The old Pentax Spotmatic was also mentioned, a straigforward mechanical camera that fitted the hand beautifully, and I for one, still remember the superb quality of those Super Takumar lenses. These cameras can still be had for reasonable prices, but for how much longer. Any more ideas for tomorrow's "classics"?
