The Canon P rangefinder. One of the simplest yet elegant designs ever made with precision hand assembly and superb lenses. I still use mine. Check out my write up here:

"Its like an artist that admires his new brushes versus actually using them."

No, it's not. It's called industrial design. It's a form of functional art similar to automobiles, teapots, guitars, computers and thousands of other functional items we use everyday. An appreciation of functional design does not mean you cannot utilize it's function.
