M series were made to be compact. M28, M501.4, and M100mm, should do it. If you get an LX body and an40mm pancacke it will fit in your jacket pocket.

I do like to carry around the 28mm because it is so compact and gives solid results, but I am really just looking for a one lens type of package to take with me. Something still along the lines of my takumar 28-80 because i can snap some beautiful landscapes and some good candid photos of my friends along on the trip. I usually carry a mix of three lenses with me but these kinds of trips its nice to just have the one planted on the body the whole time.

When I travel I carry a single lens with me. My 28mm f2.8 It is always on the body and around my neck with an AF160 in my pocket.
I have tried carrying multiple lenses and multi-focal length lenses, but I tended to never use them and they dragged me down in weight. If I can't capture what I want with 28mm, then I need to rethink my composure.
