This is really useful stuff.
I'm still not going to jump, though. I took my Ricoh GR with me last Sunday alongside my XPro2 and I can see myself doing that until the GR replacement comes along. There are four factors that sway me in favour of the GR.
Size - GR is smaller
Touchscreen - GR doesn't have one
Tilty screen - GR doesn't have one
Monochrome - I can't replicate the GR HiBW mode with another camera, or in post, to save my life.

So, I'm sticking, still. I like to read favourable reports of the X70 - it is all the Fuji imaging virtues in a small package - but it ain't for me.

Horses for courses. Two of your "sway factors" go the other way for me: I'm seriously considering the X70 because of the tilt screen and touch focus capability. I used the HiBW mode with the GRD III and IV and never warmed to it; would rather use the capabilities of Silver Efex Pro to do monochrome conversions. Size is a wash for me.

My decision will be based on whether I can really get a lot more out of the X70 than my Coolpix A. Using more than the normal amount of GAS restraint of late, so by the time I decide whether to go X70, its price may have moderated.
