    There's just not an obvious measure like the milli-Helen for beauty (you know - if Helen of Troy was the face that launched a thousand ships, enough beauty to launch one ship is one milli-Helen) because there's no agreement on what is cool much less just how cool different things are WRT each other.

    Obviously Arthur Fonzarelli scores 1000 milli-Fonzies so just compare everything else with him.

    Ahhh, but its a 'blad. Anything with "blad" in it, must be instantly cool.....well, except for maybe the latest 'blad's. They are not cool. They are Geeky

    That's because both beauty and the concept of 'cool' are in the eye (or disordered mind) of the beholder.

    The Coolest

    My choice would be a Rollei 6008i. Way out of my price range however.

    The Mamiya 7 is a little ugly, a little clumsy, plastic and very uncool but I love mine. I have a Leica M7 and an M9 but just love the 43mm lens on my Mamiya 7.

    Linhof 220; a vertical format Leica on steroids, with a pistol grip. Delicate (never, NEVER drop one!), but fast shooting and very sharp!

    Second choice: Linhof Technica 70. Like a Baby Technika, but with a built in rangefinder/viewfinder with frames for 65/80/180 lenses. All three were rangefinder cammed with a single cam that rotated to change focal lengths. So you bought your lens set with its matching cam.
    For tripod shots, you could focus on the ground glass with the usual Technika door with folding leather sides to block light. The lens board had rise, shift, tilt and swing.
    It was a supercamera that could do anything! I used to attach my Rollei potato masher flash to the side bar and shoot weddings!
    Maybe that's why my back is in such bad shape now...
