Re: Yes to a small mirrorless and a pancake prime

The XM-1 combo fits easily in the chest pocket of a work shirt or any cargo pocket, and that's  plenty small enough for me. I don't like fiddly little cameras, and am no fan of  retractable lenses. And of course I am wiling to sacrifice size for focal length-- both the GR and the Fuji X70 would be smaller but then I'd be stuck with a 28mm equivalent lens and images that would be far less interesting to me, especially out of camera.  If I want to shoot with a lens that gives me that field of view I already have a true pocket camera with me all the time, right in my smartphone. And that one comes complete with a cropping and editing suite.
