    The OP specifically asked for 35mm SLRs: "So let's start a beauty contest poll - who gets your vote for the nicest-looking 35mm SLR ever made?" However, there are lots of cameras named here that do not meet this description at all!

    My vote would have to go to the Nikon F Photomic (first model Photomic head, with incidence attachment), or the Pentax Spotmatic. I also like the looks of the Canon R cameras a lot (example: http://www.collection-appareils.fr/c..._R2000_bis.jpg).

    Some of those oldies are real beauties. I'd have to say my 'prettiest' 35mm camera is the SRT202, followed by the XD11, Canon New F1 and Nikon F4. (I am also especially fond of the Minolta Freedom Zoom 140EX, but that's my dirty little secret.)

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    Here is another pretty - a Konica FP. You have to see it in person though.
    The satin chrome finish is a knockout.

    Another vote for the Nikon FE/FM cameras. So functional, so well designed aesthetically and functionally. Which is unusual for a Japanese camera

    I really like the Kodak Retina Reflex III which is a close relative. I have two.
