The Nikon SP rangefinder is butt ugly

And I thought the Hasselblad Lunar took the biscuit for ugly.

For me, the best looking would be the Leica III series, original Nikon F, OM1, SL66, early Bronicas (Z, D, S), and any Ebony.

I was hoping someone would reply and say these were ugly. Because beauty is in the eye of the beholder. A camera is a tool. It is like saying which is more beautiful a hammer or a polished gold plated hammer. Who cares.

Well they are ugly, for sure. But some 'tools' are still beautiful, aside from their functionality. Nikon SP rangefinder for instance. Nothing wrong with enjoying that beauty.

It's nice to say that nice pictures are nice. (sarcasm)

It is a brick with some dials, no smooth lines, nothing pleasing to the eye. It looks like the Japanese were attempting to knock of some other brand poorly. Sharp angles, yes butt ugly. There is nothing beautiful about it and no beauty to enjoy, My examples are much more beautiful, you can tell that someone actually thought about the astetics of the camera unlike the Nikon SP. We will never agree  because beauty is in the eye of the beholder which was my point..
