As a pocket camera, I really enjoy my Rollei 35. It's a mid '70s scale
focusing rangefinder camera with a Zeiss f3.5 40mm lens. The camera has given
me wonderful pictures, and is quite robust. I don't fear taking it anywhere.
These cameras routinely come up for sale on eBay and sell for under $200. They
also turn up in used camera stores, but are usually priced higher than they
should be.

If you really want a new electronic P&S, the Rollei Prego and Samsung series
of cameras is also quite nice. They come with optics by Schneider. Good luck
with your decision.
