These were great for outdoor shots when the sun was so bright the lcd was impossible to use.

I know that LCD screens have come a long way since these cameras but they still get washed out from time to time.

In the RX100, switch the LCD to Sunny Weather mode - problem solved!

RX100's magic white LCD is a good improvement over previous LCD screen in outdoors. You should try it.

Personally, I really don't care about those useless parallax prone non-zoom optical finder. I prefer not to use them at all.
