2. The Hunchback of Solms (follow-up)
And the winner is...
3. The Sam Memorial Dog Camera Award (World's Ugliest Camera, beyond a doubt!)

Featured Comment by Spiny Norman: "Beautiful: Nikon rangefinders. Leica M3–M6 (black or chrome, doesn't matter to me), R4. Olympus OM4Ti (IMO, perhaps the most beautiful SLR design), Olympus XA, Olympus E-1. Pentax MX, LX, and K-7. Nikon F (standard prism), F2, FE/FM, F3, F100, D3. Polaroid SX-70. Canonet, Canon G10/11, Ricoh GR-1 and GR-D series. Contax S2. Rolleiflex. Hasselblad SWC. Mamiya 6. Pentax 645.
"Ugly: I've never seen a Minolta that wasn't at least a bit homely, except the CL/E, and most are worse than homely. Leica M5. Leica M8 (the changed proportions make it hideous). Leica R8. Nikkormats. Nikon F90 and relatives, FA, F4, F5. All Nikon DSLRs below D100. Most Canon SLRs and DSLRs since adoption of EOS system mount. Pentax K10/20D. Contax 137, 167, RTS. Rollei 35 (but charmingly ugly), Rollei 6000. Hasselblads, except the SWC. Mamiya 7. Pentax 6x7.
"But the ugliest camera of all is any Leica M that's not a user."
