Default Name The Camera BODY????

This camera body came out in the early 1980's. It changed the way all future cameras would meter light. It was awarded the "Camera Grand Prix" and the company produced a working version in 24-carat gold plating trimmed in finely textured crocodile skin leather.

This body broke new technology and laid the corner stone for future concepts of metering. However AF was on the way and as a consequence this masterful body was not a commercial success.

I'm not sure, and without the use of Google I'll make a guess: Olympus OM4 (and the all manual version OM3)?
They had multi-spot metering which I loved in that camera.

For my second guess (once again no Google) Nikon FA, and what was or maybe what was to become matrix metering?
