Olympus OM-1 MD 1975 Kadlubek Nr. OLY0870 in black I've long felt that there were a few cameras that just stood out from the crowd. I once posted here on the subject: http://www.photo.net/classic-cameras-forum/00MgL8 Foremost, perhaps of these, is the original eye-level 35mm SLR, the Zeiss Contax S. Another classic camera for me is the original Asahi Pentax H2/S2 - just classic style. In the late 50s as well, the original Nikon F with the plain prism (NOT the Photomic) is a classic. Of slightly more recent cameras, I have felt that the Japanese Contaxes, such as the Contax RTS and the 139 Quartz, were deserving of praise. And finally, there is the Olympus OM-1. It not only pioneered the "small" SLR trend, but it is just handsome to boot. Here, first of all is my "new" Olympus OM-1. It is, as you can see, the MD (for motor drive) version (1975), but otherwise very similar to the original camera (1974).
