    Is there a:

    35mm, full frame, compact body with AF, AE with full manual override, fixed lens 35-40mm ~f1.7ish? Body no larger than an Oly Trip 35. No RF's as my eyesight isn't sharp enough to focus in these little VF's.
    I have: Rollei 35 TE, Minox 35 GT, Oly Trip 35 and Oly XA2 that come close, but not quite close enough. Am I on a witch hunt? Any input is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Gerry

    The Contax G1/G2 is the closest you are going to find. But essentially you are on a witch hunt.

    First point: if you are not going to be focusing through the lens, you really dont need a f1.7 speed lens.
    Second point: if your eyesight is bad, then any of the small cameras are going to be hard to use. Small cameras have smaller viewfinders than big cameras.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    Konica Hexar AF has a 35mm 2.0 lens, AF and AE. May be a little larger than the trip 35. Don't remember if it has AF override.

    I agree with the Contax G1/G2.
