    Regarding "notables" having one camera or another, I think this criteria should never have an influence on someone looking for it.

    Lucien Clergue once photographed a model in my back yard. I was surprised to see him use a handheld Minolta x-370 that he carried in a small airline (probably a promotional) bag. And he was doing in camera double exposures over paintings he previously photographed in museums. As has been mentioned it's not the camera it's the photographer who makes the image.

My (owned for all this time) 47 year old Beseler Topcon Auto 100, made for the amateur market and having leaf shutter, does have shutter timing issues.
    I have the repair manual or the Super D and found a few places in which their very low weight oil is used, and two places where some grease is used. Why my camera shutters check out OK after decades seems rather remarkable in view of this, although the locations of lube seem to be in areas not associated with timing gear trains.

    I found out W. Eugene Smith had an SRT 101 only after I bought the camera and was curious who else might have used it. I believe curiosity may well be the most important quality of any artist working in any medium. I also enjoy history, which I believe is pretty important, too...

    One photographer who used the srT-101 in the 70's and 80's who's work is now considered child porn because his subjects were nude teens by many is David Hamilton.

    David Hamilton was a mild pornographer in my opinion.

    You inquire after instead of before the purchase but it is still the same question... Curiosity in terms of photography is a good excuse. Well done..., although your curiosity might be used for some other purposes creativity wise...

    Some cameras just "feel" right, and it differs for different people, for me it's Nikkormat FT2, F3, FM, SRT 101, Ricoh XRP, I have a FM2n but it just feels different from the FM, though they"re the same body.

    When his books of nude teens were first published in the 1970s they were very widely available in book shops at least in the UK. Attitudes changed later, particularly after the conviction in 2005 of a guy who had 19,000 images of porn including Hamilton's books. After the case the Surrey police advised owners of the books to destroy them to avoid the possibility of prosecution.

    BTY he also used the Pentax ES for the nude pictures, when that camera was generally seen as an amateur model.
