The E-MU Vintage Keys was also released around 2003 as a standalone keyboard although I believe that it's no longer produced. Lots of keyboards have preset organ sounds, but if you're talking about what people call Hammond clones or clonewheels (because they clone the sound and operation of the original Hammond organs that used mechanical tonewheels), you need the ability to manipulate the levels of the individual drawbars, the 9 variable tone components that you use to sculpt the sound and create all the tonal variations as you do on the real thing.
Electro 4 - the D version has real drawbars, the SW73 version has more keys, but you lose the real drawbars. You may also still find some Electro 3 around, which (as you would guess) is an older version of the Electro 4. Stage 2 (73) - organ sound is again not quite as good as the 4 series, but still excellent (and better than many others here), and it does not have real drawbars. The Nords that do not have real drawbars use a simulation that uses up and down buttons and LED displays instead. VR-700 - real drawbars, and one of the best feeling organ actions around (and as a bonus, the action is better than most unweighted actions for piano, if you must play piano from an unweighted action). Jupiter 80 - not quite all the organ functionality of the VRs, but you do get drawbar control via a touch display, lots of other sounds and synth capabilities, and a nice action. Jupiter 50 - similar to Jupiter 80, but without the touch display, drawbar settings have to be made through a menu. Korg has the Kronos and Kronos X 61, which includes their CX3 engine along with piano and a lot of other functionality, including full synth. Kurzweil has the PC3K6, which includes their KB3 engine, piano, and lots of other functionality, including full synth.
If you decide to go with a piano-oriented weighted action instead of an organ-oriented unweighted action, Nord, Kurzweil, and Korg make weighted versions of all the boards of theirs that I listed above.


Smithson Martin Emulator DJ transparent touchscreen mixing desk allow DJs to spin their digital discs on the durable toughened glass surface that has 130 digital controls projected by a 2200 lumen short throw projector.
The Emulator DJ is bundled with a MIDI controller PC software that works solely with Traktor Pro. It sounds like the primary goal of the OP is the organ function, with the piano function secondary, so let's look at current models with unweighted actions.
Their overall design still tries to capture much of the organ ergonomics as drawbar models do (and non-drawbar models generally do not). The closest they come is the Motif XF with the optional Organimation or Organ Session library… that can give you drawbar style control, but even then, you only get independent control of 8 of them at a time… you can't get all 9, due to the fact that the Motif only has 8 faders, and just the general architecture of the machine. Of those, the Nord Stage 2 weighted action is probably the best adept at handling organ, the Kurzweil PC3 is probably okay too. A lightweight weighted 88 board will be better for playing piano than any unweighted action, there are plenty to choose from, from the Yamaha P-35 on up.
For example, if you get a board that doesn't have much synth functionality, and you happen to own an iPad, there are great iPad synths you can trigger from whatever keyboard you get.
Smithson Martin’s Emulator DJ transparent touchscreen mixing desk is a digital music device that available in three screen sizes of 32, 42 and 46-inches. I've noted the ones that have real drawbars… the actual mechanisms vary, and some purists call some more real than others, but for these purposes, I include any that have the authentic look, shape, and spacing. I think that, as clonewheels go, Nord has the best piano sounds, though I don't think they play very nicely from Nord's unweighted actions. Also, these attempts to turn a Motif into a clonewheel, while clever in that they work at all, can exhibit various limitations such as limited polyphony or phase cancellation issues within the samples.


For that matter, the clonewheel organ built into the iPad's GarageBand program is quite nice itself.
In some cases, I've noted some key features or differences, but by no means all the important ones. They also have a couple of basic synth sounds, albeit with no controls (not even pitch and modulation controls). There are also 76 key versions (PC3K7, PC3) though the action is different, I think less good for organ, though some people find it a better compromise for also playing piano. Kawai also has a tonewheel mode in their MP6, and Roland has some of that functionality in some of their weighted boards as well, like the RD-700NX and possibly some others. You can use these things with their own piano sounds, or to trigger what may be a better piano sound inside your organ board via MIDI (as you might if, for example, you were to choose an unweighted Nord for your organ board, since those boards also have such good piano sounds).
I've included some references to their synth functionality since that was also mentioned in the thread. There is also the PC3LE 6 and 7 which have that compromise keyboard, have a slightly lower end rotary speaker emulation, and use knobs instead of faders or drawbars.
