When I had my RX100II, i found that it was too thick to comfortably fit in my jeans pockets (unlike my Canon S90, which is much thinner), so I ended up buying a small case for it or using my jacket pockets. I think this is the segment that Canon is aiming for with this product.

True Pocketable = Canon S120 3.9 x 2.3 x 1.1

Somewhat Pocketable = Sony RX100II 4 x 2.29 x 1.51

Somewhat Pocketable = Canon G1X Mark II 4.6 x 2.9 x 2.6

Being about half an inch larger in every direction completely removes it from being "jeans pocketable" but it'll still do fine in jacket or cargo pockets imo

Thanks for the measurements. Definitely not a direct competition for RX100 series then. Too big.

I find RX100 very pocketable. Not shirt pocket, but most others. G1XII at a half inch bigger in each dimension seems a lot bigger to me.
