As a pocketable format, µ4/3 is a stretch.   It can be pocketed, but it's more a smaller mass system than a pocketable one.   But then again, it depends on the size of one's pockets.

The EPM1 and 2 and the GF series are nice and small with Pancakes fitted, my GF2 + 14mm is smaller than my Fuji x10 compact.

I'm not disputing that.   I guess I'm suggesting if one limits a CSC it surely can be portable, but it's a system camera and to be utilized as such it's not all that pocketable.   One might be better off with a fixed lens camera.
