    Try looking for Olympus Mju II or Yashica T4/T4 Super/T5, all non-zoom models.

    APS film cameras are very compact. Can take photos in 4:3, 3:2 & 16:9 format.
    From Pentax to 4/3, back to Pentax and then back to M4/3 !?!?

    Very true, however, personally I won't recommend APS cameras for a number of reasons:
    1. APS film catridges are more expensive compared to normal 135 (35mm) film, both in terms of film and development.
    2. APS film catridges are not widely available or processed - think traveling to less developed areas, and their usage is all but extinct.
    3. APS has a smaller film size, meaning you'll have less resolution (smaller frame having to be enlarged by a higher factor compared to a 35mm frame).

    APS is a dead format... not recommended for serious use...
