    What about a Bessa R

    I have a silver one, they take all LTM (Leica Mount) lenses, Black / silver canon's look cool on it, so does any vintage leica glass

    They can be had for between $200 and $300 with out a lens.

    For me, the ones that have the "cool" factor in that I find them interesting in how they work and the fact that they're great cameras are the Zeiss Ikon Tenax II, the Werra 3, the Ducati (Sogno) and the Konica II.

    But I'm also a fan of the lever-wind Retina IIa and the IIIC (Big C), as well Agfa Super Solinette, the Zeiss Ikon folding Contessa and Contina II, the Nettax and Super Nettel and the various Super Ikontas.

    My favorite camera is the Zeiss Ikon Contax IIa.

    I used a Rollei AFM 35 for a while (it belonged to somebody else) and thought it was the best 35mm camera I've ever used.

    I own Voightlanders, Nikons, and a QL17 to put my opinion in perspective.

    Super-cool? Depends on whom you are trying to impress. For knowledgeable RF users with a sense of history, maybe I'd back Hensoldt Reporter; Ilford Witness; Combat Graphic 70mm; Linhof Press 70.

    To use... Well, that's a different matter.

    Cheers,

    Cool is an interesting description. How about this, as I believe it has the greatest rangefinder separation of any 35mm camera.
