    I have had several: Rollie 35 is nice but weighs a ton and is bulky. You can't carry in any reasonable pocket; it like a little brick. Your posting has encouraged me to sell my Olympus XA on APUG. Great pocket camera.

    I have a spare autofocus Canon Snappy LX. Tenspot and shipping. Keep you shooting while you are making a quality decision.

    Olympus XA is excellent and very pocketable, but certainly different than a Minolta SLR.

    I love my Olympus Stylus Epic. It fits nicely in my pocket!

    How about this one mentioned by Matt above, and just listed?

    Canonet QL17GIII is what I ended up getting when I was looking for one. Nice fast 40/1.7 fixed lens, decent viewfinder with parallax correction framelines and meter readings visible. Meter only works in the AE (shutter priority) mode, but the camera can be shot manually. Very small, very solidly built. Can't say whether it is better or worse than any other compact 35, but it works for me.

    If it is an SLR you desire, then consider a Pentax MX. This is one of, if not the, smallest SLR's ever made in 35mm. Affordable? Prices run the gamut from high to low. Pocketable? Depends on the size of the pocket, but it can be done reasonably well. After the LX this is the best Pentax ever made in my opinion.
