    I agree !

    It's interesting that no one has mentioned either of the cameras (that I know of) whose creation had as much to do with "good looks" as it did with photography - Nikon's EM and Canon's T-90 (and hence, the EOS-1 in all its incarnations).
    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    People usually say "nice camera" when they see my (d*****l) D300... which is basically my point-n-shoot. When I carried a Nikon F4 I never got comments, except one wag who asked me "Why are you still using film???" When I go out with the RB67 people notice and comment, but since I've moved back to Charlotte they don't usually speak to me directly like they would in Boone. This conversation from across a bridge in Freedom Park is typical: "What's that guy doing?" "Looks like he's photographing those flowers." "That sure is a big camera."

    Favorite-Pentax LX, naturally. Even nicer in reality than its pictures. About the size and weight of a Nikon FM/FE series machine, but with interchangeable finders. Simple, clean lines with subtle curves which usually are not noticed in pictures of it. Very solid. Great balance.

    Also, Nikon F2 with plain prism, F with plain prism, Nikon FM series, Minolta SR-T 101/102, Olympus OM-1, Pentax Spotmatic, Contax RTS series, older Canon F-1. Incredibly clean and angular, the Topcon RE Super/Super D, charmingly interesting with its 4-point star like a Lincoln town car, Miranda Sensorex.
    Can't believe I left out the ME Super-a pretty machine. Chicks still dig it.

    I'm with you , the Vito's are simply classically beautiful also though I find my Exakta Varex gets loads of interest from strangers.

    When you turn your camera on, does it return the favor?

    I agree Ken! The Olympus OMs. Classic and elegant.

    There are also a lot more nice models. Long list...
