Re: DPR hands on preview. GR

Myself, pocketable or not, I don't think it a good idea  to carry a camera in a pocket or even a handbag as all sorts off stuff gets in there besides cameras.  One guy on here years ago had one of his keys (in his pocket with the camera of course) pass through the front protective leaves of is GRD and scratch the lens surface, ouch.  Then there were all the dust/lint issues which could never be sheeted home to whether or not the camera had ever resided in a pocket. Therefore "fit in a pocket" is more a size-metaphor than a good practice (IMHO).

I would never put a camera in a pant pocket. But I regularly would carry my GR1 in a jacket pocket, where it was the only item in the pocket. Very convenient, and safe.

So for me, more than metaphor.
