The thing that upsets me is the Pentax 110 used a 4/3's sized sensor - why did digital require shrinking the sensor so much?

If they used off the shelf components, why does it cost so much?

At this price, I expect at least the 4/3 sensor. It could have used 4/3 lenses or m4/3 lenses with adapters.

(If you say wide angle light ray geometry, I will say Leica digital rangefinder.)
