I purchased a Minolta Dimage Xt more by luck than by design but I'm glad that I did. It's great for keeping in my pocket and is of course unobtrusive.
I like the way the lense is protected when it's switched off but do agree that you have to be careful not to obstruct the lense with your fingers when taking a photo.

I do not use this camera for 'serious' photography, as I have a film camera, although it's taken very nice photos (comparable to more expensively priced DSLRs at A4 size). Remember that compared to 35mm film quality there are only 2 (v expensive) DSLRs that can boast... (read more)

Well protected (fully enclosed lens structure) has survived many a dropping on drunken student nights and stil works fine. will not focus without a good light source. Slow to focus and take photos even in good light - slow software. (read more)
