    Probably been said before but I will say it again:
    the coolest MF camera is the one you own and have learned to use well.
    Technological society has succeeded in multiplying the opportunities for pleasure, but it has great difficulty in generating joy. Pope Paul VI

    So, I think the "greats" were true to their visions, once their visions no longer sucked. Ralph Barker 12/2004

    But, Mamiya Press is also cool. It's reasonable in price, and it's a range finder. It has interchangeable backs and a decent selection of lenses: 50mm, 65mm, 75mm, 100mm, 150mm, and an f5 250mm. There are two others; but, the 90mm and 127mm don't have their own finder, and none of the internal finders have the same field of view.

    Imo, if you want to be cool around the younger bunch, a TLR beats everything in the cool department, it's so different to anything else that it just stand out.
    It doesn't have to be a Rolleiflex 2.8F, even though they are the coolest ever, from a APUG-nerd standpoint. (white face is ultracool if you are a collector, but I digress....)

    A seagull, cord' or a yashica TLR will do perfectly well, and if you really want to impress the Lomo-crowd, bring a Chinese You Yi TLR =)

    The Soviet counterpart of the Voigtländer Bessa I and II is also a camera that would fit nicely on the "cool wall", the Moskva V, even though quality and ease of use may be a whole different story ^^

    This makes me think of a question asked of violinist Itzahk Perlman some years ago when he spoke at the National Press Club:

    question: "what is your favorite piece of music"
    answer "it's the one that I am working on at the moment"

    Put down another vote for the RB-67. It's big ,heavy and people stop and take pictures of you when you use it, but WHAT SLIDES YOU GET OUT OF IT! Just heaven.
