Looking for a good digital rangefinder for a relatively cheap price?

Looking for a small and quality camera with full manual controls and maybe interchangeable lenses akin to the Leica M9 or the Fuji X100 for day to day use and to take street photography without freaking out people on the street with my (relatively) gigantic DSLR. I want to spend £300 maybe £400 tops, willing to buy from Ebay to cut-down on price. Any ideas? Thanks!

Details:

  1. The Fuji X100 is the cheapest digital rangefinder on the market. If you want something cheaper, check out the Canon G12. It isn't a rangefinder but does offer good manual controls.
  2. Burst your bubble dude, they dont exist 1. The fuji x100 is not a rangefinder camera, it looks like one. 2. M9 is pretty much out of everyones price range 3. Epson made a digital range finder may years ago. But they are very exclusive, only sold in japan, and arent being sold anymore. But infinitely cheaper than the leica. Epson rd-1 http://www.luminous-landscape.com/reviews/cameras/epson-rd1.shtml try finding a used one on ebay. Quality not guaranteed. 4. The cheapest would be to find a old russian range finder. Which can cost as little as five pounds. Which leaves you with 295 pounds to spend on film. the best rangefinder resources http://www.rangefinderforum.com/ http://cameraquest.com/ if you can live without a rangefinder, you will be very satisfied with the olympus ep3 or one of its micro four thirds competitors http://www.olympus.co.uk/consumer/21693_pen-camera_e-p3_24708.htm http://www.google.com/m/url?ei=89h7TuDfKYGsiAfuvQE&q=http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympusep3/&ved=0CBwQFjAC&usg=AFQjCNHDCf8mgd3x0JEF90AgfaYpwxZxoQ
  3. why do you think leicas are expensive.... so that people can knock off 300 versions of them?
