what is the thickness of the camera with the lens retracted. in other words, is it pocketable? UPDATE: i'd like to thank everyone for the responses. at this point, despite my cheapskate nature, i think i have settled on this camera: canon powershot s110 http://shop.usa.canon.com/shop/ru/catalog/cameras/powershot-g-s-series-digital-cameras/powershot-s110-black
You can find the actual thickness on Nikon's website, but realistically it's absolutely "pocketable". I've put it in the inside pocket of a suit jacket, front or back pocket of jeans, dress pants, etc. It's certainly thicker than a cell phone, so you'll know it's there, but very manageable. I've never had issues taking it somewhere because of it's size. Certainly the best quality in the amount of space it occupies.
It's 1 1/4" thick at the lens base. The whole camera fits on the palm of a hand, touching no fingers. It's very pocketable, but I don't pocket mine with anything else, such as coins or keys, since the UV coating on the screen can scratch easily. I also still like my classy MegaGear leather case and get comments on its style.
The exact thickness of the camera should be included in the technical specifications on the Nikon site (nikonusa.com)...so I don't know what that dimension is for sure ... but I do know that the camera I have is definitely one that you can put comfortability into an inside jacket pocket or even a shirt pocket if you like ... it is pocketable. Hope that helps.
