This is an old thread, but just for closure, I went with a Minolta XD11. I got it at a good price (still in transit so I don't have it yet) with two lenses (50 and 135) so decided to give it a go. It ticks most of my boxes and the only thing it doesn't have that I wanted was spot metering, but I'll see if I can live with the center weighted metering. Thanks everyone for the recommendations as always!
