Have you seen: http://www.cameraquest.com/com35s.htm
Yes this is the main problem I had. Other rangefinders may be smaller, however they do not have aperture priority. The Yashica does pretty much meet all my needs, and I'm willing to sacrifice a bit more bulk for that. Currently I have a 5D and a FM2, so hopefully it won't be as bulky and heavy as those!

And yes, I did take a look at cameraquest. It is really fantastic!
