If the next G series model, the G7?, has the GX7 sensor and finally adds a headphone jack and perhaps IBIS (not necessary), the RX10 will have zero appeal to me.

As it is, the RX10 is interesting to video shooters, although in typical Sony fashion, they've managed to muck it up in one obvious fashion: no articulating screen.

UP and down. The flip and twist style LCD isn't the best solution for everyone, so lets not pretend it is. Some shooters don't even want a flip and twist and prefer the simplicity/purity of a fixed screen. Sony met them in the middle.

So they didn't muck up the design just because they didn't want to pay royalties to use the flip and twist style screen that only maybe half of users would want over the flip up/down type.

Different users, different desires.

We (all of us) never agree 100% on any one style of anything. Thank god.

They did muck it up, though. A hybrid camera meant for shooting video (as the RX10 obviously is) as well as photo needs to be able to go all the way to 180 degrees, either up or down. Preferably up but the Sony A77 showed that down is also a viable direction.
