    Smallest I know of is the Nikon N55.

    Most of the big 4 (Canon Nikon Pentax and Minolta) made small AF SLRs. The smallest? Is that even relevant? Smallest means nothing here. The small cameras are all SMALL. They are small by design. Pick one. Pick a Minolta Maxxum 3, or a Nikon N75 or a... the list goes on and on.

    If "small" is the only criterion, get a decent P&S camera. There are plenty of those too and take great pics.

    "Relevant?" Yes, it is to me.
    To put my question in perspective, in 35mm slr's, I have/use/shoot: OM1, 2n, OM4T, XE-7, SRT101, 202, F100. Also, Rollei 35TE and a few P&S's. Also own/use ETRSi, Mamiya 7, Rolleicord Vb. Also some Nikon D's and Sony R1 + digi P&S's.
    I was hoping that an slr autofocus body exists that, size wise, is closer to the OM's than the XE-7!
    I hope that clarifies my question.

    I bought my wife an OM-77af, the body is small enough but the lenses more than make up for size. The 70-210af zoom is a freakin monster! The 35-70 is large diameter, and short(relatively). They are not only bulky, they weigh a ton compared to their manual focus counterparts. I'll stick to my manual focus cameras. If you want small auto focus, get a p&s zoom with that feature. Pentax, Fujifilm, and most all major manufacturers made them.

    The Pentax *ist is dinky. It might even be the tiny-ist.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Haaa!! Had a N65 but really loved it! Very nice hand-hold-ability and seemed very small, now that smallness goes away when you mount a lens. Hey Nikon folks - did Nikon ever make a AF pancake?
