Two things: "Driving prices down" means just one thing: cheapening quality. I read a lot of that here, and I wish the 'cheap' crowd would just go buy the cheap camera of their dreams and leave the quality cameras alone. Why does every camera have to be cheapened?

Second thing: The Ricoh looks bigger, based on one statement of  "117 mm width".

I had a ricoh GRD and the build and ergonomics was way better than any compact I've owned in last 10 years.

The longer body with enough room for thumb and grip are great. It's slimer then nikon A (which is most important imho considering pocketability) and it's also lighter.

I would take it over Nikon any day, but I'm afraid, I'm done with fixed lens compacts.
