Perhaps it's proof that sentiment overrules logic in camera preferences, but none of those 40-year-old newcomers can hold a candle to the Spotmatic in my mind. The first pro photographer I ever knew used one (I was maybe 15 years old) and nothing else comes close to its essential coolness. Like a finely tailored suit, tactile, elegant and no more than one needs. If James Bond had a camera, that would've been it. With the 50/1.4, of course.
