Why oh why can't someone make the pocket camera I want? In a nutshell it would be like the Konica Auto S3 I had in the '70s but with better build quality and manual options. Instead we get that interminable delay before the shutter actually fires because the auto-everything is trying to make up its teeny mind about the auto focus, exposure blah blah blah. What I need is a really well made compact with a collapsable lens (so it will fit in the back pocket of my jeans) and built-in meter -- exposure/focus can be manual. My Bessa-T is the closest to this but it's still a bit too big; my Minilux is the perfect size but too "auto" for its own good.
I love my little Olympus 35RC rangefinder. If only the lens collapsed into itself!
