Neither is pocketable, but surely you don't believe that the M8 is the same size & weight as the D200 (even assuming each has a comparable prime attached)?

However, I do agree that a compact digital like the Caplio might be more "mind-emptying" than a D200 & be a lot easier to carry around.

Try this on for size:
Five a Second. Chicago's Bell & Howell Co. (cameras) announced that it would put on sale this fall the world's most expensive still camera. Its "Foton" will take five 35-mm. pictures a second, sell for $700. Bell & Howell, which has found that "families of both low and high incomes now spend over $550" for movie equipment, hopes to sell 20,000 Fotons a year.
