looks like a perfect companion for legacy lenses.

Looking at the camera top, it seems that Nikon and Brikk have an agreement on who finishes what parts in gold. You have to buy both to have all parts in gold. Clever.

Sad.
Well, Brikk still makes good cameras.

I would love to see Nikon taking similar approach by developing "no-frills" digital camera with no LCD, no AF, split screen, raw-only FM2.

Hello,
Thank you dpreview for featuring the project and thank you all for kind comments. I acquired ICA long time ago but used it only few times with original glass plates, and then it was collecting dust sitting as a decoration on the bookshelf.
Few comments/answers
1.I did the project purely for fun and yet after almost two years, still using the camera.
2.I chose Sony NEX because of its compact body, excellent focus peaking and tilting LCD. I think it was a good choice because now I can attach A7 using the same adapter.
3.I did little post processing in ACR, Tessar is surprisingly sharp and works well for the close-up photography
4.Old ICA’s front/rear standard has some movements for tilt, shift, rise, fall and swing.
All the best and have fun!

qwertyasdf: 20+4.9+4.9 = 39? I don't get it!

If the grip is facing backwards, then the thumb needs to exert pressure to hold the camera. How can i use my thumb to press the buttons on the back?
I just tried holding my Canon 1D backwards, it dropped on the ground.
(But the scrollwheel, which is now in the front is very convenient for the index finger to turn)
Am I holding it wrong? I don't get it

Anyways, I'm gonna get it no matter what! ByeBye DP2M

I am also puzzled with this "grip facing backwards" design.

M DeNero: I see comments like "Wonderful controls!" and "Great ergonomics!" Pardon me for asking, and I'm not trying to be a wise guy, but is there really any benefit to these retro designs other than aesthetics? Modern SLRS have precision, customizable controls that mostly lie right under the finger tips of one hand. You can make adjustments without even thinking about it, while keeping the other hand on the zoom or focus ring. These retro designs seem to have nicer industrial design, but after handling several they seem very clumsy to me operationally. Please enlighten me.

"Pardon me for asking, and I'm not trying to be a wise guy, but is there really any benefit to these retro designs other than aesthetics?"

Well, all modern DSRLs (Canon, Nikon, etc) are using "retro" design (AF, buttons, menus, etc) even grip, from mid 80s introduced by Minolta with their 7000 Maxxum.

DPR, it would be interesting to update your excellent LR vs C1 comparison with Aperture results. Thanks.
