There's never been a best film camera because they have so many different uses and some are better than others in some circumstances
1200 pounds sterling was, I believe, quoted at USD 2.80 per pound at that time (1958). And that $2.80 was in SILVER!
In 1958 minimum wage was about 50 cents per hour but that 50 cents (in silver) is now worth about ten US dollars today. You can get $10 from any reputable coin dealer for a silver half dollar (which is more than the $7.50 minimum today). - David lyga
Sorry folks but beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I always thought the bulls eye Contarex was the most butt ugly camera ever. Then Canon pioneered the 'slightly melted plasto-blob' look with their introduction of the T-90. Many modern DSLR's now copy that look, ugh! My idea of the best looking camera is the original Nikon F with the non metered prism. It just looks right. All that is essential with no ungainly protuberances, clean and purposeful. Thirty eight years ago I chose Olympus OM as my 35mm SLR because of the small form factor and weight and the OM-1 is nice clean looking camera, but the Nikon F is my favorite looking camera even though I have never owned one.
