ILCs will never be pocketable, aside from a select few tiny bodies with tiny kit lenses which don't outperform fixed lens cameras anyway.
In terms of technical IQ, every current APS-C camera with a decent small fixed prime lens outperforms any current 1" compact.
 

Kit.

OK, and where can I get that decent small EF-M 15/2.8?

An it wouldn't even outperform, just would be on par.

And that's the problem, you'll either be stuck with single focal length or need to carry multiple lenses. The former is fine for some and the latter throws away the whole pocketable thing and adds some extra inconvenience.

I think that if the optical quality of the 24-240 lens is good, that $899 is not an unreasonable price. If it lists for $899, chances are that it will likely sell for a little less after its been released. Also, rebates always happen during parts of the year.
The price is actually making me feel a little more optimistic on quality. If it’s half way between the rf24-105, and the old 28-300, it’s a likely buy for me.

the ref 24-105 is just so damn good that would be hard to take off if the 24-240 isn’t reasonably close!

Most of those bodies aren't pocketable even with a pancake prime on them--certainly nowhere near as small as a G7X or an RX100 series camera (and now apparently the G5X II). A select few camera bodies with a pancake lens could fit in a large jacket pocket--but then you're on a fixed focal length OR you're using a kit lens with such a narrow aperture that you might as well be using a 1-inch sensor anyway.

Well Sony actually did, truth hurts I guess.
By all means, please share your sources for that information.

Incidentally, before you toss out the original Sony Mavica as ‘truth’, understand that it was analog, not digital (that’s the ‘D’ in DSLR, as I’m sure you’re aware).

You’re entitled to your own opinion, but not to your own facts. Careful that your ‘truth’ doesn’t bite you on the ass.
