Apart from the Minox EC/ECX, I believe that Minox C is the best shooter, if you do not want to fiddle with shutter settings, metering the zone, sharpness and so forth. True, it has manual control, but it also has something which makes the C an auto shooter of first category. The A setting once locked, no need of "wasting " time with all those manual control. Just point and shoot. Quality ensues.
