Aesthetics are subjective.    That said, I have always considered the Nikon F (with non-meter pentaprism) and the Nikon rangefinders (culminating in the SP) to be the best looking 35mm cameras ever made.    Having never owned either, I have no stake in this.  I did (do) have some nice film gear.   A lot of Leica/Canon LTM equipment, as well as an original (second series) Leicaflex (among others).    So I was not using anything inferior; it's just that the right deal on a Nikon F or rangefinder never happened to come along, and I was not actively looking.     Too late now though.     Once I got involved in digital and found out the results I could get, with my desk as my darkroom, there was no going back.
