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?

Appreciate any thoughts from those who have it!

The GR V is not pocketable in the manner you described. The Canon S110 might do that for you.

Looks like quite a few think the camera is pocketable. Yes, if you wear cargo shorts. Yes if you are wearing rodeo clown pants. Yes if you are placing in jacket pocket. No for most others unless you are not liking your camera too much and want to jam it in there real good. I am sure that in a tight pocket there are stressors put on the camera that will eventually effect performance, dust being the least of them.

Your opinions live up to your screenname. Twice you've said it isn't when clearly others feel it is. Perhaps there's some room here for differing opinions based on many factors. Those factors don't have to include, as you suggest, that people aren't caring for their camera properly.
