    What's is "proper" anyway? My T2 is sulking....
    A true proper Point and Shoot? Then it has to be the Olympus Mju II. True point and shoot. Cant be any simpler.

    But if OP wants a contax and doesnt mind paying that much, the T2 is his best bet. More of a premium point and shoot with aperture control and $300+.

    Seems to be a very popular market (high end film P&S)
    A T2 which cost 1/3 of what a Nikon F5 sold new is now selling for the same price as the latter used
    The T2 does have a gorgeous lens tacked on it

    People no longer want to carry heavy metal cameras to obtain similar results to one they could slip in a shirt pocket. The downside is most point and shoots were not built to last, although lightly used ones can still do the job.

    I had a Contax T2 that would leak light when the lens motor extended the lens. Great lens. Too bad the body was flawed. I sold it on eBay, not as mint, but with full disclosure of the flaw.
