Need help with a G9 replacement for my wife (Another help me thread)

Hello all. I am a long time lurker and seldom poster. Thanks for all you do!

I need a little guidance for a camera for my wife. We have a d90 and until recently a G9. She loves the image quality of the d90, but the portability of the G9. The G9 finally decided to give out so we are looking for something similar as a replacement. We have young children so something that is able to get decent photos in less that ideal conditions is a must.

Also, we have to buy the new camera from Best Buy. I know, I know, not ideal but don't ask....

Here are my options...

I would love to preorder the Canon G1X Mark II but that is probably a little expensive for us...

Canon G1X - $549
This is the natural replacement I think. We like the G9 and this seems like a pretty large upgrade from it.

Nikon Coolpix P7700 - $419
I like Nikon equipment and this seems like this might be a good fit.

Olympus XZ-2: $299
I know nothing about this, but it was on the "Best Cameras" page and is on sale for $299.

Fuji X20 - $500
This looks like an interesting option, but again, I dont know a lot about it.

Sony RX100 - $550
I've heard good things, but have never owned a Sony camera.

Thanks so much for your help, and please let me know if I am missing anything!
