    Olympus OM (get two OM2n cameras), and a clutch of Zuiko lenses (don't worry about Zuikos. They're the best!).

    They are indeed. I picked up an OM-2 a while ago for peanuts, and it's a great camera (this coming from someone who dislikes SLRs.) If you get an OM-1, make sure the meter is still working. Some broken ones out there ...

    The Minolta X700 that I bought (said in my original post) actually came with the 45mm f/2.0 lens that you recommend already on it. Sweet.
    I did a quick search of the XD11. It looks to have what I would need (metered manual).
    Does the shutter sound the same as the X700? I love that sound. It's like a controlled "swish-click" and not just a "klunk-clap" like so many other slr's.

    Aren't most interchangeable rangefinders upwards of $500 or more? I did a quick search for this Konica Hexar RF (and a few others like the Minolta CLE and a few Bessa's) and I didn't find ANYTHING for less than $500. That's body only and that is way more than I want to spend on a camera that I'm just gonna use to play around with.

    I'd TRADE like 4-5 working slr's and lenses for one. I'm sure I can find lenses for cheap or for trade.

    You might want to check out some of the Canon rangefinders.

    I've got a Nikon D700 which is my working camera, and I was in the same situation. It's a beast to take anywhere casual. I picked up a Nikon N80 super cheap and it's my favorite for walking around. Has all the control of your F100 and none of the weight. Put a 50 1.8 AF-D or 24 2.8 AF-D and some Tri-X and you've got yourself a great combo.

    I also just picked up an FE and a 24 2.8 AI. It's a nice combo too, but a lot heavier than the N80 although smaller. I'm using it for slides.

    Look for an older ZI, like the Zeiss Ikon Contina series rangefinders. I have two of the III's, they're light, they have photocell lightmeters with an ISO dial EV indicator. Easy to use and dirty too. I picked each of mine up through sleezebay for less than $30 USD each over the span of a couple years.
    Thank you.

    I'm very sorry sir, didn't see that criteria. Although the Hexar RF is a very nice camera indeed.

    No interchangeable lenses and they are ugly...no thanks.


    For right now, I'll probably use the X700 and the 45 f/2 until I can trade up to some kind of decent rangefinder (with a lens).
    If anyone wants to trade me a good interchangeable lens rangefinder (with lens), I'm open for a PM.

    Aw, see now. I was on a roll until I had to open my big mouth about the Zeiss . . .
