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

The GR and the NEX6 are completely different target markets.  The grip on the GR is perfectly adequate for what it is.  Ricoh can save the NEX-size (perhaps better shaped) grip and the built in evf for the next GXR camera back.  Tilt screen might not be so necessary, but would be nice.  The number of new patents that Ricoh has sought recently has hardly been scratched by the release of the GR.

I also note the reasonably aggressive pricing of the GR - obviously the "New Ricoh" is going for more market share.
