    Hi
    I'm looking for a secondhand camera and need some advice. In the past I've owned a Nikon F90x and a Bronica EC-TL both of which I had to sell after falling on hard times. I'm now in the market for a small compact camera which has good glass, preferably with interchangeable lens and most importantly is very quiet...oh... and which won't cost me an arm and a leg. Any advice greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum.

    How about an old range finder?
    A Leica would fit that description...except for the arm and leg part. A Leica will cost both arms and both legs.

    Canon EOS Elans are supposed to be very quite...but they're not very compact.

    Hi Kemplefan
    MF is fine as I expect AF will be more expensive. How much for the minolta with a bunch of lenses in decent shape but is a little dirty? It's too big for my immediate requirements but at some time I'm still keen to get back to an SLR.
    Hi Big Mike
    Is there such a thing as a reasonably priced Leica?

    I'm not sure about a reasonably priced Leica...all the prices I see are very high. Look around though.

    There are Leica clones...not quite the same but cheaper.

    Yashica electro, dirt cheap, non-interchangeable lens (45mm fixed), very quite

    Former soviet union cameras, interchangeable, relatively quiet, sometimes good glass, sometimes bad
