you make valid valid points.

One thing that has made the decision more difficult is the internet, indirectly.

While one can read about all the different models, and check image quality comparisons, very few stores actually have them in stock, presumably because they can't compete with online stores.

I could find out in 5 minutes which is best for me based on handling but have not seen these cameras anywhere.

Yes, you're right...I guess you need to live in a big capital city, or at least pass by an airport such as Heathrow, to be able to see most of those side by side. But if handling is very important then maybe the RX100 is not the best choice. Not because I don't like the way it handles, but as I said its emphasis is on pocketability. I guess slightly bigger cameras with more room for controls might handle better. Good luck!

That's the sad part.  I live in Los Angeles and even here it's difficult.  Best Buy (the big, I think biggest electronics retailer in the country) doesn't carry any of these.  I'm sure someone has a few of them, maybe Fry's, haven't looked yet.

I remember a camera store in London Heathrow - I remember thinking I wanted the layover to be longer because I was drooling at what they had as working display models!
