Some factors are important for me, but missing in the comparison.In camera distortion correction (in Nikon),color rendering, infinity focus mode (in Nikon).I think if we consider these features, Nikon is the winner.
iluvmyd800: I recently bought the Nikon 7700, and have been very pleased with how it generally performs, except in low light. But, I did not buy it for that; I bought it for an upcoming trip to Brasil and I am not keen to take my big DSLR and some lenses lest they get stolen! The range on this little camera is remarkable, and it takes brilliant photos in good light. I could not be more pleased. There is a lot of buzz about the Sony RX-100, but I found it to be too small, that it's optical zoom is limited, and that it is slippery in the hand and too expensive for what I wanted. I managed to find my little Nikon for $C450 with tax.
I have Oly C5060 (I like it) and Canon G11 (I do not like it, but the low light performance, of coarse, and lens cap is better than Oly).My priority is a fully tiltable LCD.I am planning to buy a Nikon P7700.I do not understand how a camera can be sold without this.Do you like crawling in the mud?And a camera without filter screw?
