It's like the camera got dropped into a very deep well. After being introduced to widespread notice and reasonably animated discussion last March, I have heard nothing about the Coolpix A since. Nothing at all, anywhere.
Too high priced? A name that resists searchability? Lost amidst too much competition, too many cameras? Something else? Mystery to me.

Featured Comments from:
ShadZee: "Simple. Ricoh GR happened."
Cary Seipp (partial comment): "It seems pretty clear that that the Ricoh GR comprehensively stole the Coolpix A's thunder. Cheaper, better lens, basically the same size and image quality, friendlier interface, no-nonsense operation, and significantly cheaper.
"The reasons to choose the Coolpix A evaporated in the face of (arguably) superior competition."
Hrvoje: "I have one. It is hands down best camera I've ever had (I also have an OM-D and a Canon system). Never before I have seen such image quality in such small package. I do not care about reviews and comments, I really, really enjoy it."
