It's really the end of an era, with the death of Willy Ronis. Alongside Cartier-Bresson, Boubat, Doisneau, he was the last to have recorded all those people of France, before and after the war. In his pictures, whatever the subject, there was always a testimony to happiness, life, childrens... Salut l'ami...

I thought it was a nice weird and funny link... :-)
One simple camera, often overlooked, was the Nikonos V... Simpler maybe then the Leica (no rangefinder), nearly indestructible... And of course waterproof ! With a terrestrial 28mm it would do great pictures when one got used to acquire distances by sight (it did have a cell of the FM2 sort). The fact that it was bright orange added some similarities with Sony's "My first camera" and most crowd wouldn't really pay attention to it (helpful for street pictures). If my memory serves me well, it was featured in the movie "Stargate" (the original) in it's military olive version...
