I vote for the Minox 35 GT-E. It scale focuses, and I have owned 7 over
the last 20 years. They have been lost, stolen and dropped in a lake.
Its clamshell design fits into any pocket, it is aperture priority with
a backlight switch and it can also be adjusted using the ASA button for
exposure. It can take exposures out to 30 seconds (or more?). A
wonderful camera for taking night exposures. Has a hot shoe, no built in
flash...thank goodness. You can hook it up to anything. Minotar lens is
2.8 - 16, and I believe it is currently sold by Leitz (for Leica
content). I never leave home without it.

After using a Nikonos for years, I had no troubles scale focusing a 
Rollei 35. Nice camera, great lens.
