How big are your pockets (literally and figuratively)?
and what do you mean by 'best'?
If you mean 'best' in an IQ sense, I reckon you could easily get a Leica M9 and 35/2 into a pocket (especially as there'd be no cash left in your pocket afterwards)
my last P&S was an Olympus u8100 'weatherproof' (which doesn't mean glass-of-beer proof, nor Czech-river-swimming proof, both i found out the hard way). IQ wasn't so bad either, for an 8MP 4 years ago.
The only reason i would buy a P&S again would be for places i can't take my 7D, like skiing or underwater, so my definition of 'best' would be indestructible first, IQ second, although your opinions may be different...
