    I've gotten a few compliments from complete strangers when I took my Yashica Electro 35 GT out for a spin. Ditto with my Spotmatic SP500. Makes me feel good.

    My vote for sexiest SLR is the Contax RTS, so macho..but I don't have one.

    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Yeah, I get looks and questions pretty much anytime I carry around one of the oldies but goodies. It's all good, though.

    It belonged to Elliot Erwitt, I can only wish it were mine. What're the odds we ever see an M9 that turns out that well-loved?

    Other timeless cameras are the Rollei 35 and Kodak Retina Ib, IIc and IIIc.

    The Steinheil Casca II from 1948 could be taken for a stylish digital camera:

    The winder arm on a Spotmatic is a thing of beauty

    Mamiya 645 Super | Nikon F4/F100/FM2n | Minolta Maxxum 9/Dynax 7/X-700/X-500/XD7/SRT-101 | Pentax Spotmatic | Canonet QL 19 (GII) | and a whole bunch of glass

    Hasselblad 500, Leica M3 and Pentax LX would get my votes. I've always like the Leica CL also - really neat little unit. Oh and the Olympus 35SPn... geez it's hard to narrow it down ;-)

    edit - opps... supposed to be 35mm SLR only. Can I add the Nikon F to the LX then?

    I much prefer the angular looks and black-and-chrome of most older cameras, they look like precision instruments, made to do a professional job, rather than being sci-fi plastic fashion accessories. Same with cars...real classics from the 60's to 80's.
