Ah, but you have already ruled out the two most pocketable cameras above.

Leica IIIf with collapsible lens. Heavy, bigger than either of the other two. Fits in a coat pocket. Has parallax corrected rangefinder focus. Put a Voightlander VC II meter on it if you want a meter.
+1 Leica IIIf. Lens is magnificent.
