Re: Canon G1X or Sony RX100

Really only the Canon G1X fits your spec given that you think you need a viewfinder.

I considered mentioning the G1 X in my post earlier in the thread, but thought it was over the $800 limit. Checked now and it's just below, $794 at B&H and you can probably find it for less too. It fits your requirements well, but personally I'd find the 4x zoom somewhat restrictive. It might not be to you however and it well worth consideration. The IQ is much better than the X10, but the camera is also much bigger.
