The Nikon Coolpix A is attractive simply because of it's such a small camera with an APS-C sensor. The lack of a viewfinder is huge drawback as is the lack of manual controls, but a truly pocketable camera with great low light abilities is a huge plus. I wouldn't mind a camera that I could truly keep in my pocket without sacrificing image quality, but I find 28mm to be too wide for general use. Great for indoors and when you need something wide, but beyond that it would be a bit limiting. 35mm is just wide enough to be used indoors around a dinner table, but also long enough to be used outdoors as a street camera. If you want a wide landscape shot, there's auto stitch.

If it weren't for the 28mm lens, I'd highly consider it. With the 28mm, I'd pay half MSRP. Still not in place of an X100s though.
