so which is the "best" pocketable compact then?


Jul 8, 2010
By far the best pocketable camera I have owned to date is my latest acquisition, the Richo GR. I cannot believe how tiny, how powerful and how well made is this little digital gem. I can literally slip it into my jacket pocket and pretty much forget about it. The IQ at base and up to about 1600iso is outstanding.

Another vote for the GR, if the fixed focal length works for you. Awesome IQ and so small and convenient.

I am also a big fan of the Lumix LX5/LX7 cameras. Haven't tried the RX100 yet, but I would think it's going to be a strong contender.

I haven't read the rest of the replies but for me is the GR, period. I know you are stuck at 28mm but that will make take you our of your comfort zone and 'see' different if you re not used to wide angle primes. But that's the fun of photography right?
