Interesting suggestion.....the only problem is I don't have the 14mm pancake lens. I have just about everything else....see my gear page. I will consider this, though. Thanks.

Edit: I now see that you meant RX100. Different beast altogether. That probably puts a Fuji X100s out of your price range too. Oh well, we all can dream. 

You may not have the 14mm f/2.5, but purchasing it along with an E-PM2 body is still way cheaper than either of the options you laid out at the beginning.

The Sony RX1 is not pocketable in the traditional sense, but offers image quality in spades.

The Nikon A seems to have stellar possibilities if you believe what DXO tells you.

Why not a Fuji X100s if you are considering the Nikon and Sony? It has the viewfinder the Nikon lacks and the classic 35mm FOV that the Sony offers.

I have read quite a bit about the X100s. I know its IQ is supposed to be great and that the S fixed a lot of the issues with the X100. I guess where the X100s seems less than ideal to me is in two areas. It is "biggish" (not really pocketable, is it?) and not what I'd call unobtrusive (like a small pocketable black camera would be). I will study up on the X100s more, though. The fixed focal length of the X100s is also one of the points I am less excited about when I consider the Nikon Coolpix A, but the RX1 has a fixed focal length lens and Sony seems to be having no problem selling them.....
