Few cameras will make a photographer’s mouth water like the Hexar AF. When it comes to some of the best point and shoot cameras that use 35mm film, it’s tough to get anything better (though there arguably are other options.) The Hexar AF is often said to be one of the best available for street photographers and has a fixed 35mm f2 lens stated to be a copy of a Leica Summicron. Everything about it is designed to be low profile.
The design of this camera is so good that it can be seen in many today–with it likeness most prominently compared to the Fujifilm x100 series of cameras. If you’re a street photographer, there’s a lot that you’ll like about this camera. In fact, even if you just want a fixed lens point and shoot, you’ll adore this camera. At the same time, there are things that could drive you a bit nuts if you crave more full control.
