    Fixed-lens camera with wide-angle lens

    I'm looking for recommendations for a manual focus 35mm fixed-lens compact camera with a wide angle lens. I already own several viewfinder cameras and a rangefinder but they all have lenses that are 45mm or 50mm. I'm looking for something with a 28mm or 35mm lens - does anyone know a camera like this? Something with crude metering would be nice - a selenium match-needle or similar.

    The kind of thing I'm looking for, except with a wider lens:


    I have a couple of old SLRs with wide-angle lenses, but I'm looking for something a bit smaller and lighter.

    Any suggestions?

    A Olympus XA has a 35mm manual focus RF lens, although, it is not from the vintage of the cameras you show above, but meets your requirements...

    Interesting re XA4, wasn't it only macro though? I see it has macro, 3m and infinity?

    Virtually any compact AF camera with a fixed lens produced between 1975 and today. Many are 38mm, most are 35mm, quite a few are 28mm, and lengths in between. If you want small and light, you won't find much smaller or lighter than the Nikon Lite Touch AF/AF600, or the Ricoh R1.

    Never mind. I missed that "manual focus" part.
