A is 2 ounces more.

i would not put the rx100 or the A in a pants pocket.  I use a jacket pocket or a small camera belt pouch.  The A and the rx100 will fit in the same pouch.  The A will fit in loose jeans, it's just that its been a while for me since I wear jeans.

You can put the 'A' into a reinforced shirt pocket, where it will sag but otherwise be unobtrusive. Carrying in pants would not be practical as it's heavy and bulky, just like carrying a small brick. And, if you carry it not sealed up, dust will work its way into the lens and sensor and ruin it.

Yes it fits in jeans pocket. Played bowling a couple days ago with A in pocket. Was ok. Not invisible. Would be better in cargo trousers. Perfect in jacket pockets, including inside wallet pocket. Best to keep pockets clean though and avoid lint crawling through lens. Also best to have protective sheet on LCD to avoid zipper or coin scratches. Great to have such wonderful IQ from such a small and convenient package. I use a miniature Ricoh viewfinder.

Use a plastic sandwich bag to keep the pocket dust out.

Cheers.

Plastic bag has too much static electricity which attracts dust

Instead buy a $ 10 ballistic nylon velcro or zippered case with a little padding
