at some point this will stop because Ricoh won't give us another GR in 2014

Well,I am not sure. you may not get another GR but I am pretty confident that Ricoh will have a compact with an APS sensor on the market next year ( most likely a GX with a short zoom)

I'm not so sure how well the Leica X Vario or GXR A16 zoom have sold in fact. But I doubt that any of them was a hit for the companies. It is a nice idea but the cameras become too deep/bulky to be carried anywhere which can be done with the GR and Coolpix A etc and also slow apertures for the zooms.

At least for me a zoom would be better as long as it is for small camera with interchangeable lenses. But if Ricoh must make a compact with a zoom at every cost, at least make one which might make sense. A 20-50mm or maybe even somewhat wider if possible?
