Blowing' my mind... Which one?

Ok... I feel often much better with small cameras than Leica M cameras, so I recently sold all my M gear, less the M2 and 50 Lux pre..

Really I feel better with a tiny Ricoh in my hands.. Or something like that.

The point (and shot sorry for bad joke), is.. Which one? I want the best performance in terms of IQ, focus, body and viewfinder. I love colour as much as I love B/W

Contax T3, Ricoh Gr1s, Fuji Klasse, Hexar AF?

I've have had Ricoh and Hexar (this last, with very bad results due to the slow max. speed, but have to try again).


Two days ago, I developed two Tri X 400 of my last Gr1s with very pleasant results with Rodinal:

Hexar AF plus an ND filter works fine for me, if I want to shoot close to wide-open in bright light. The lens is great, the silent mode is great. However, it's not really that compact.

I've never used a Klasse, but I have used the Rollei badged version (the Rollei AFM35) which I gather is basically identical. It's an excellent camera. Very sharp lens, very accurate metering. The viewfinder isn't as good as the Hexar, and it's a bit noisier, but I'd be quite happy going on a trip with just the Rollei AFM and some film (and have done so in the past).

Thank You so much!

So the Hexar has really a magical lens? But is almost the size of a Leica M2 which is my favourite camera... I don't know if 28 digital with the GRD IV, 35 with the Hexar or 38 with the T3 or Klasse/Fuji.. I want to shot some digital just with one. I'm the proud owner of a Leica x2 but I think I can't justified it, a lot of money and I'm not as good photographer for keep it in the future.

The Olympus mju-II, known in the US as the Stylus Epic. Great glass lens, a 35mm 2.8. mine cost me $2.00 at Goodwill.
