G15, SX50, Rx100, P7700....undecided

Ok so right now I have an old PS S2 IS and I want to get a new camera.

I want to use the camera both for everyday use and for hiking (landscapes, some wildlife shots, occasional macro)

1) RX100:

+ the perfect size !

+ So much praise for the IQ even under low light


- the most expensive by quite a margin

- Zoom is modest

- I prefer to use a viewfinder

2) SX50

+ That Zooooom !

- Yeah but 80+ % of my shots wont need a zoom so ...

- doesnt look smaller than my S2

- Probably suck as an everyday camera compared to the other  ?

3) G15

+ Cheaper than the RX100, better IQ than the SX50 under most conditions

- bigger than the RX100, but I think its size is still ok for me

- modest zoom

- will miss the swivel screen, although I think I can live without it

4) P7700

+ Decent zoom, but less powerful than my current 12X

+ swivel screen

+ Comparable IQ with the G15 for roughly the same priice (so much cheaper than the RX100)

- bigger than the G15 ?

anything else I might be forgetting ? seems like I'm leaning towards the P7700.......but really not sure.
