The Ricoh gr is certainly a very interesting camera  - but for many reasons I think the M1 is better.  Plus I have the X lenses I can snap onto it.  Sure, once at youre destination pulling out the 35mm and snapping it on the body is not a 2 second job, but its pretty fast and it can be carried from then on.  It doesnt' really matter, piont is its really really convenient...

If you check out camerasize.com, the m1 is the same size as the x10 - perhaps slightly bigger with the 18mm lens.  I was able to take this camera out and use it - parks, countryside, walks, commute up to london etc - and having it in your pocket is just fantastic.  Yes, its not small but very convenient.  Its not iphone sized...but get this - 8 years ago I lugged around a D300 and a sigma lens the size of a tank, and i'll be getting better images out of my m1 and its in my pocket !
