In addition to those previously mentioned, among my favorites are Pentax PC35AF (quiet) or Canon MC (noisy). Nikon L35AF. Canon ML. Truthfully, as far as AF compacts, or compact rangefinders, most of them have very good lenses. The rest is all a matter of ergonomics, availability and utility. See what they have at the local thrift stores and flea markets, and don't be afraid of some of the less-known names, like Chinon or Samsung. Some of the cameras listed here are not what I would call inexpensive for a carry-around camera, though.
