I have been testing the Nikon Zf over the past week (full review coming soon), and I have fallen head-over-heels for the design of the camera. I love the vintage camera aesthetic, and I have had previous (and ongoing) love affairs with Olympus and Fujifilm cameras for the exact same reason.

As the first full-frame camera that also looks this damn good, the Nikon Zf ticks so many boxes for me – all except one big one, and it's one that makes me worry that any future film-inspired digital Canon AE-1 might fall at the same hurdle.
