Chiming in late here, I also have stubbornly held to the dream there was a "pocketable" camera that could provide decent IQ in "normal" situations. I've never figured on dumping the DSLRs simply because they do many (actually most) things better. G9, S90, LX5, all were "OK" but not compelling and the Gs just don't go into a pocket. I finally realized that that form factor still has a ways to go and am currently using/experimenting with a GX1, the 20mm f/1.7, and the EVF. The view finder makes all the difference as I just can't take pix with an LCD. This rig won't go in a pocket, but I've started wearing a small hip pack sticking phone, billfold, keys, and camera in it. (OK, call it a "man" purse if you like ) Actually works fairly well and I'm slowly starting to use it. Biggest problem is remembering to slow down, look, see, and shoot as I rush about in my oh so busy and important life
This is a SOOC from the kit of El Morro in NM. A little PP brings it right up. I'm actually impressed with the camera. No it cannot do the work of shooting an HS football game in extremely poor light. Even my 1DIV is pushed to its limits with those constraints. Still, for keeping something with you that you might remember to use, this is a good solution. I have no doubt that similar offerings from Oly, Sony, Fuji, et. al. would also serve you well.
