    Yes..the old Minolta MC lenses were excellent, pity that the bodies....i.e. SRT101, SR7, SR1, seem to be so difficult to find, compared with Nikon bodies. The X700 is fairly common, but not of the same standard of construction as the earlier Minolta bodies, also the later MD lenses appear to be more "plasticky" than the earlier MC series.

    Olympus XA, Pentax K1000, Canon F1, EOS1N, Olympus OM1N, OM2N, OM4 ... in fact, virtually every film camera that is now out of production and more than 20 years old is a classic by definition.

    Rollei, any version of the 35. I just ran a roll of one of my last Plus - X through my SE today.

    I'll also vote "anything" - but it would be nice to be able to shoot at all its shutter speeds....

    If we're going to include electronic cameras, how about these Pentax beauties...

    ME Super
    Super Program/Program A
    Program Plus
    ME Super

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    -I'd argue for the Nikon FM3a - its hybrid shutter control makes it both a fully mechanical camera not reliant on batteries to do its thing AND a modern AE-equipped, electronic shutter control MF camera.

    That aside, the build quality is terrific, handling is great and the built-in center-weighted meter works very well.

    Yup, the FM3a is likely to become a classic somewhere down the line. (I guess one can argue that it already IS a classic, albeit a very recent one!)
