I've recently had the good fortune to get an M2 as well. BTW, both
cameras will fit in my jeans' pocket with the 35mm Summicron, and
will also fit into several shirt pockets (I look for shirts with big
pockets). On that basis the CL and CLE are definitely pocketable,
but, really, I'm looking for something smaller and cheaper.
Thus far, it seems that the Canon GIII and the Olympus 35RD are the
cameras that will be hard to beat. I already know how the canon
fits and works for my needs and preferences, and the RD seems like
it may work well too. I may end up staying with something of their
size ... but the search continues.
