    Top 10 classic 35mm film cameras

    In say 20 or 30 years’ time, which 35mm film cameras do you think will be thought of as the top 10 classics?

    Cliveh I'm dying to know, before this thread gets real long, which one you'd put at the top of the list. My pick is the Pentax MX.
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.

    Canon F1n
    Nikon F, F2
    Olympus OM1
    Leica M2, 3, 4
    Leica llla
    Rollei 35

    In 20 or 30 years time, the classics would have to be mainly mechanical cameras because electronic ones won't be working by then.
