The most beautiful/iconic camera ever made
Mar 15, 2013

I'm a longstanding Pentax user but a friend has just bought an Olympus OM-D which is rather nice although a bit awkward in the hands I think but I was pondering afterwards what is the most beautiful/pure camera design and I have to admit I think the Olympus OM-1 or possibly OM4-Ti take some beating for pure design excellence.

I also have a soft spot for the sheer quality of the old Contax rangefinder bodies:

So what do others think?? I've never owned either of these cameras but to me they are just excellent designs and quite beautiful as pieces of pure engineering excellence and photographic history.
