Coolpix A for $300 or a Ricoh GR for ~$450?

What do you think? Coolpix A seems to be quite a bit cheaper on the used market, presumably because it is not as well liked as the GR. i would prefer a GR because of the more pocketable size, but coolpix A is so damn cheap these days.
Any other options I should be looking for? I am really looking for something that's flat, wideangle and can fit into pants' pocket.

Note that back then the Coolpix A actually cost a lot more. I'd strongly consider it for $300.
