So it's a NEX 6, with all the cool features removed?

Does an NEX 6 have a fixed lens with automatic lens cover?  Does an NEX 6 fit in your pants pocket?  No.  Apples and oranges man, get a clue.

So you can't put a NEX with a Sigma 30mm pancake in your pocket, but you can put this in it? The NEX is 120 x 67 x 43, the GR is 117 x 61 x 35. Appleas and apples. You can borrow my clue, I don't need it. And byw, the fixed lens thing isn't a positive.

No you can't: http://camerasize.com/compact/#454,375.369,ha,t

Not to mention you still need to manually put on and take off the lens cover for a pancake lens.  Any other questions?

LOL - Cane is SERIOUSLY reaching here!! I doubt he can rebuttal with anything at this point. The large flipping grip on the NEX is the first obvious reason why it's not truly pocketable. /sigh...fanboys

People, people, don't get your panties in such a wad. I didn't say they were exactly the same size, they are 'roughly' the same size...

Those giant lens caps are always getting in the way. Thank God a solution has been found.

You clearly don't know what you're talking about.  First of all, you're comparing the two cameras with the GR lens open and extended.  Do you put compact cameras in your pocket with the lens extended?  Secondly, if you're putting the camera in and out of your pocket a lot, an automatic lens cover is a huge advantage.  Especially if you need to quickly grab a shot of something.  Even if you were to use your inaccurate comparison shots, millimeters matter where portability is concerned.  It's obvious, but in case you didn't know, the point of the GR and the Nikon A is to have a pocketable camera with unprecedented sensor sizes.
