Hi Karen,

     You know, I had a p&s (Olympus Epic), but I'm a 50mm lens type.  So I
dumped it for a screw mount and a 50/3.5, which will fit in a jean's front
pocket;  a little heavier, but not too bad.  No batteries and there's no
delay for the autofocus.  I just don't visualize with the 35mm lens, and
there's no p&s with a non-zoom 50mm lens.

     Why not just take the M6 with the 50mm lens?
