    The coolest RF is obviously a FED (I like the 2). It's named after Felix Dzerzhinsky and you can't get cooler than that.

    Only because I haven't got one.

    Another vote for a Argus C-3. And you are left with film money.

    Maybe being saved from being scrapped , with history and continuity across two decades and two ideologies , not to mention a dash of originality , signals a cool rangefinder .

    This Contax II was so rough that it was sold as spares .

    I sent it to Ukraine where it was rebuilt by the Arsenal Technicians who built the Kiev clones . Generally , the body and shutter etc are orignal 1930s Contax II .
    The back is pre-1959 Kiev which fits perfectly , the current lens is a 1980 Jupiter 8 [ Sonnar clone ]

    The self timer was removed for a smoothed look .

    What was left of the black paint was stripped and the bare metal polished for the overall silver look , textured tan leather completes the camera of 1936-1980 .

    That's COOL !

    I think Mamiya 7 is the best one

    If I mentioned it before, I apologize. But I'll put in a vote for the old Kodak Retina II with the 50mm f2 lens. Why not the III? The addition of the built-in meter makes it clunky and big, whereas the meter-less one can be slipped in a jacket pocket.
