Anyone use one of there yet?

In my endless, seemingly futile quest to find a pocketable camera that'll go some way to replace the 15kg of DSLR equipment I currently hump around, this looks like it might be good enough and small enough to be useful.

I'd be interested to see other stock photographers' (i.e. people who use it for work, rather than holiday snaps) experiences with it.

I use a fuji hs10 as it has an amazing zoom, ideal for non stock work when you are ot and about.

Well I suppose I don't really expect to replace my normal gear all the time, but for doing editorial stuff in cities I thought it might be quite useful. I like the way it looks like a 'normal' consumer camera, makes people less nervous.

I have got a X100 but it's too big for a pocket and the 35mm lens length is a bit nothing-y if you know what I mean. 28mm is much more my cup of tea.

I bought a Sony RX100 for the very same reason. If you are okay with 28-100 range, I recommend you to put it in your shortlist.

My friend has one and says it's good, but I like the idea of a compact camera with the chip from the D7000 which was a great consumer DSLR with low noise. I'll have to try them both and see.
