I could deal with the regular viewfinder 'somewhat' if the images knocked me out. Maybe I expected too much. I admit I have not 'woodshedded' with it and got deep inside all the settings yet as I have been really busy . . . Is that where I will find the so called 'magic' everyone is talking about or did I just expect too much?

Your problem is you have an opinion as to what a photo should look like. The RX100 does take excellent photos but if you want a certain look you'll have to experiment with different settings or shoot RAW and process the photos to look the way you want. Except for the D3 all your cameras are film. Do you want a film like look? I'm a former film shooter from way, way back. I find the RX100 takes better quality photos than 35mm but whereas each film had a certain unique look, digital tends to look rather neutral unless you post process. As far as the LCD, I agree that most of the time a good eye level viewfinder is better.

Look at the picture, not the pixels

Miss use of the ability to do 100% pixel peeping is the bane of digital photography because it causes people to fret over inconsequential issues.
