Yes, I've always considered the original screw-mount Pentax Spotmatic design from the mid-60's as the high point of camera design. It fits my hands perfectly, and operates so smoothly. Earlier Pentax SLR models were not as smooth to operate, and the later bayonet models didn't seem as elegant. It wasn't the most rugged design, but it was the most refined.
