This camera competes directly with the G12 and P7100, and indirectly with the LX5 and XZ-1, and those are the cameras we should be comparing it to, not DSLRs.

Do you think this because of the sizes as published by each manufacturer? I don't have a G12 but the X10 did feel smaller from what I remember. It is definitely not as tall. As for depth, all manufactuers probably measured from the front of the lens to the back of the LCD. If you look at pictures of the X10, you'll see that much of that is from the lens. Unlike the G12, it doesn't sit just as flush even when retracted. So, a G12 can be thinner on paper but chunkier in real life.

It's more about design, features, and price. It's a $5-600 point & shoot with an optical viewfinder and a 4x lens, targeted at enthusiasts and serious photographers. It's big enough that you're probably not going to be able to put it in a pocket, but small enough that you don't need a whole camera bag either. That puts it pretty directly opposite the G12 and such.
