    Bryce,
    I'm sure they are all good it's just a matter of features.
    If you really wanna go Canon I'd weigh the price/features to see what you can live with. Some top out at 1/500 on the shutter an some have better/larger viewfinders or combined vf/rf windows.

    I don't own a Canon (so I won't recommend a specific model) but seriously considered one at one point until I happened into a Leica IIIf.

    The Canons offer good value if you want an interchangeable lens setup.

    Great guy, great product, great price and great instructions.

    Almost pocketable and good enough for me : Chinon 35EE. Many derivatives exist (e.g. under GAF brand in the USA). Cheap enough (I wouldn't consider the collectible rangefinders branded Leica Canon or Nikon as carry-everywhere tools).

    When Jon Goodman (interslice) and I last corresponded, he was in the process of setting up his own, non-eBay retail portal.

    Did he mention which Zorki?
    FSU (Soviet) cameras can be hit or miss but if the seller is a respected member you should be okay.
    Sounds like a possible decent deal.

    Jupiter 8 can be quite good.

    If you want discrete, one of my dream RF's is a Olympus 35 SP. Although the price might be just around your pricepoint, maybe a smidge more?
