Anyone wanting to embrace auto focus technology should look at the Canon 3000 series compact SLRs. With Canon's 2.8 40mm pancake, it makes a coat pocket size AF, multi-mode point and shoot with modern lens technology. Having searched for the ideal carry round film camera, but been thwarted by some aspect of performance, the Canon 3000 makes an unlikely candidate, but ticks most of the boxes. It's not quite as small as mechanical cameras like the MX and OM1, but it's very light, easier to hold and cheap. I bought a mint body and a new lens for around £100.
