Myself, pocketable or not, I don't think it a good idea  to carry a camera in a pocket or even a handbag as all sorts off stuff gets in there besides cameras.  One guy on here years ago had one of his keys (in his pocket with the camera of course) pass through the front protective leaves of is GRD and scratch the lens surface, ouch.  Then there were all the dust/lint issues which could never be sheeted home to whether or not the camera had ever resided in a pocket. Therefore "fit in a pocket" is more a size-metaphor than a good practice (IMHO).

Photographic styles are different among people but I've never gotten into the 'quick pull out a camera from my pocket and snap a shot with it'. Not sure what kind of shots those are but it's different than I use a camera for.

Anything that urgent and spur-of-the-moment will have to settle for my iPhone camera.
