Recently some one asked me "Is that an antique camera?" No, I replied; It's a Hassleblad. That got a blank look followed by "Well it looks like an antique."
A couple of years ago I was shooting some pictures in Zion and a young lady came by and said "Ah, I see you are using a Pentacon 6TL - - nice camera!" Indeed, it was a Pentacon 6TL (with 50mm CZJ MC Flektagon).
