What's the camera at the top?

It's somewhat amusing that all of them has the 50mm... CMIIW but is the 50/1.4 the kit lens on these cameras or is it the 50/2?. Most camera ads are advertised with their kit lenses that I'm actually surprised with the K-7 (advertised with DA 55).

I like the way the 110 looks tucked in there.

Some would argue that it was all downhill from there...

The still came out with a few good bodies. The SuperProgram and 67ii come to mind. They also came out with a lot of good glass.

Edit: Nesster, what magazine is that out of?

My dream

The LX, nice prime lens, everything exactly the same, except a digital back so I can capture at what ever ISO suits.
Those old cameras look so good!

There will never be a digital equivalent to the LX.
Film is readily available in a wide range of ISO speeds.
Why not make your dream a reality?
