The modern film camera forum is a great addition here, I figured I'd throw my support in with the Leica R8 that I've recently acquired. I simply have not used a better camera, and it takes me back to the great feelings I had with my first camera, the Pentax Spotmatic. The original variables, distance/time/aperture take precedence in the layout of the camera. The viewfinder is hands down the best I have ever looked through. It is easy to operate the camera in fact without actually taking your eye away from the viewfinder. There are some very handy auto exposure modes for those situations that require it - but to me, the cameras design supports a simple operation of the 'classic' photographic decisions about exposure and focus. All in all feels great.
