Progression from GRD to the "GXRII prototype"?

Not selling anything, not arguing anything.

I just thought that the relative sizes of the bulk-creep of the GRD could be shown.  Despite the fact that the GM1 is actually physically smaller than the original GRD but still houses a 16mp 4/3 sensor I don't really consider it in the "pocketable" class.  Even the "deliberate mistake" of the Olympus 30mm f8.0 lens cap lens cannot hide the fact that the need for a lens mount restricts the camera in a "pocket" philosophy.  The GM1 with this very flat lens is about as deep as the GRDIV and technically capable of disappearing into such a small soft space but as soon as you fit a "proper" lens you need big pockets.  However it is a capable little beast and no toy.

Possibly game, set and match for the GXR and even the GR with various lenses has to be struggling with one that has the whole gamut of the M4/3 lens register to draw from and with adapters (including focal reducers) ... the world ...
