Advice please small 35mm all-manual travel camera : LUSENET : Photography In The Phils. : One Thread

Years ago I had a cheap-looking but great-working Hanimex 35mm, f2.8 50 mm lens, leaf shutter 1/15 to 1/250, manual focus by distance ring (no rangefinder), with a built in match-needle selenium exposure meter. I'd like something similar, small, light, with full manual adjustments, super quiet, and reliable. Meter is a plus but not a requirement. I've been looking on e-bay at old Agfa Solinette and Kodak Signet, new Russian Agat 18 and Smena 8, I bought a new Russian Fed5 which takes great pictures but it is still too big. Advice please?
