In the modern era, some of the Nikon SLRs with bodies designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro are quite pleasing to my eyes. The F4 comes to mind, and of the cameras I own, I would think that the F6 has a decent degree of beauty, especially if paired with a nice lens. Some lenses are ugly!

I also like the look of Leica rangefinder cameras, and some rangefinder-inspired cameras. Olympus film SLR cameras tend to be quite easy on the eyes. (I do not own any of either.)

While I cannot name any specific models from memory, some of the large-format film cameras, with nice wood exteriors, are quite beautiful.

I have yet to buy a camera based solely upon its beauty, though someday I might do so.

I wear a badge and pistol, and, primarily with 7D cameras, shoot evidentiary images at night, which incorporates elements of portrait, macro, still life, landscape, architecture, PJ, and occasional action.
