I'm a big Minolta CLE fan also.  I sold my Leica M camera years ago to
get one.  It doesn't have the build quality of an M, and the auto
exposure shutter electronics can be finicky (don't shoot in the
rain:), but for sheer image quality vs camera size and ease of use
there has never been better IMHO.
