The Olympus Mju compact. 35mm f/3.5 prime lens. Cheap-feeling and fully automatic but has a very good lens. I like mine.

I don't know about elsewhere but the price of the Mju II in particular has got absolutely ridiculous in the UK lately. There are loads of other f2.8 compacts out there, particularly from the 80s, but the Mju II seems to have skyrocketed in popularity and now regularly fetches 100 on eBay. I saw one for 35 a year ago and thought it was a bit pricey, now I wish I'd bought so I could sell it!
I have a slightly beat up original Mju which I got for 5, and it's a fun little camera which takes nice photos. It's not particularly ergonomic or satisfying to use, though. I wouldn't have paid more than 20.

Around september to december, there was a lot of article about good compacts for street photography, and for casual photography. And as usual, the Mju II was nammed like one of the best.
I think that's why the price skyrocketed.

If you read photo blogs and stuff like that, you can see there is a lot of trends created there. I even suspect some of the bloggers to buy stuff, promote it, and ressell it after that.

The Mju II is the K1000 of autofocus compacts - the price is ridiculous for what it is. I have an original for which I paid 10 GBP but now that the prices for the II have gone up so much they've dragged up the prices for the original too.
