    I like my N75. Very light, pretty small, takes great photos. Wouldn't use it to pound nails, but it's sturdy enough.

    I have to agree that some of the Pentax AF 35mms are the smallest I have seen. Not the lightest--I don't see how something could me much lighter than the N75--but the smallest.
    f/22 and be there.

    The Canon EOS 300/Rebel 2000 is quite small, very light and incredibly cheap.

    Even with the accessory BP200 battery pack.

    This is one of those questions where everyone will give you a different answer based on their own experience and preference. So here is mine: I have a number of Nikon bodies. I think the smallest and lightest regardless of manual or auto focus is my F75 (N75 in the US) which is not bad considering that it contains a motor for "screw drive" auto focus. For light weight and size it matches the FM10 which is manual focus only. I think that the lightest and smallest auto focus lens I have is the 50/1.8 AF-D, although I also have a Voigtlander Ultron 40/2 which is even smaller and lighter and which I prefer to use on the F75 for its lightness, compactness and its slightly wide angle of view. However that lens is a bit of a hybrid design: it has the electronic bits to support matrix metering and changing aperture by the thumb wheel on the body, but it is manual focus. I have had the F75 since new in 2004, which was just about the end of its model run and it has been completely reliable in spite of being nearly 100% plastic construction.

    Nikon N70 – it may not be the smallest, but it is the smallest 35mm auto focus SLR body that I use.

    I think lightest is much more important though...

    Some people like really heavy small things.

    What about Contax Aria (on my shortlist) ? Together with the 45/2.8 pancake lens it is still lighter than a Leica M body ...
