It's definitely a winner for most people who wants a versatile and portable camera IMHO.

Given its focal length, wide aperture and sensor size, it's almost like a 12-60mm attached to a 43 camera. For sure the lens can't be changed but it pretty much covered most people's needs (esp. for vacation.) If only if can indeed focus fast and has an above average optical quality....

I agree with you, and since Canon is claiming: “improving the responsiveness of the camera with a 56% reduction in overall shooting lag” and claiming: Optical 5x ZoomPlus 10x, Digital Approx. 4x (with Digital Tele-Converter Approx. 1.6x or 2.0x¹). Combined Approx. 20x

If all that pans out as Canon claims, this should be one very interesting travel, take anywhere, family outing camera with excellent IQ, IMHO. Remember, one of kind cameras, (like the RX100) they can sell very well when there is no direct competition
