Agree as well; 24-100 would have been better but if they improved the corner quality I'm happy with 24-70.

Of course I'm now extra-curious what the Nikon P8000 is going to offer (tilt screen, EVF?), how much bigger / heavier it is (similar aperture but much longer tele range) and how the image quality compares between the two. Let's hope we hear more from Nikon soon

Remember the Panny LX3 from 6 years ago (24-60mm f/2.0-f/2.8)? RX100-3 has slightly better lens spec and a MUCH bigger sensor

Amazing to see how the fast fixed zoom has progressed over the past few years.  I will wait for the P8000 before deciding what would replace my RX100M1. Olympus is also coming with a large sensor fixed zoom but I haven't seen any confirmed dates yet.

I don't want to go backwards in IQ with video so it the P8000 or RX100M3 would be the likely solutions.
