>It may be heresy, but I would appreciate learning users' experiences
with the Leica Minilux. As an M-6 user, it would seem to be a reasonable

alternative for carrying around as an (expensive) spare or casual

I will admit my heresy. While the M6 is my primary camera, and I usually
carry an M4-P or M3 as a second (or sometimes third) body, I have and
have been grateful for an Olympus XA. It has rangefinder focus (nowhere
near as bright as an M, but it works) and aperture priority, and
literally fits in a pocket. I have made pictures with it that hold up
quite well to scrutiny. If only it had a pc flash connector, but that's
another thread (and another list)....
