Oh , I just found this 14 Point & Shoot Leica Film Cameras – From 60 to +2000$

Very good review thanks for sharing.  

I have never really found any of the pocket Leica cams to have the right balance of features.  But @Sparkassenkunde has a Minilux and does wonders with it.  Really makes it sing.  So I think that could be a good buy for you

Wow, I had no idea Leica had so many P&S cameras in their history. I was only aware of the CM and Minilux. I'd only get a Minilux if I was sure I could get it repaired, though.

I can understand your concerns, as I was unsure about buying a Minilux because of the known errors, too. When I had the chance to buy one for slightly more than 200€ I took the plunge and am very happy I did so. The lens is an incredible one and delivers in any situation I used the camera. It has some flaws, like forgetting your flash settings after turning the camera off, and yes, there are some sleeker designs out there, but overall it delivers - and this is what counts imho. Chances are high to get a fully functional camera, but if the error 02 appears, there are people out there who repair these cameras. 

Just to trigger your buying reflexes :) :

I bought a C3 for my mom back when film was still prevalent but she never used it and finally gave it back to me.  It sits in the closet in its leather case and never had a roll of film run through it.  I didn't know they had become interesting again.  It's a lovely camera and just a few days ago, I popped in a battery to power it up.  Pretty nice if I say so myself ;)

Does it have common failure 02? They made better after market part to fix it now.

Hi, I still have and use a Minilux . As Sparkassenkunde mentions, the auto flash has to be turned off everytime your turn the camera on , then it delivers !

Some people in Portugal  repair the error 02 issue for about 130 euros. Some more offer this service in the UK.

 

Best, JM.
