My vote for most camera (functionality) for the buck are the Yashica Electro-35. My vote for highest quality for the buck (build quality and sharpness of the lens) is the Canonet.

The canonet is the most compact, easiest to load, and the 40mm lens on mine is sharper than my 40mm Voigtlander Nokton f1.4 with better OOF characteristics.

The Russian cameras are fun for us sado masochists, but why would you do that to anyone new to photography or rangefinders?
