I'm in a position where I can't first play with a GR before buying it and I really want to know if it is a camera that can actually fit in my pocket. Is it something I could put in my (relatively tight) jeans pocket and walk around with without being annoyed by?

Depends on your annoyance threshold. It's a tight fit (too tight for me and I'm slender) in jeans pockets, unless you're wearing baggy jeans. It fits comfortably in cargo shorts/pants pockets. I seldom carry it in a pocket. If I'm on a photo walk, I'm carrying it in my hand, ready to shoot; otherwise it fits perfectly in a small Tamrac 5691 case, along with a spare battery and memory card, slung over my shoulder. I don't go anywhere without it.
