    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.
    I take donations for beer and film​.

    Only because I haven't got one.

    Another vote for a Argus C-3. And you are left with film money.
    “Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.”
    ― Dwight D. Eisenhower

    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.
