Moving on from the ZS3, which compact to replace it?

Loved my little ZS3, but have not used it in a couple of years (loaned to a family member).

I'm considering a replacement, but not sure which model. I could stick to the ZS line, such as the ZS40, but with 18mp on a small sensor I don't know how the IQ would compare to the ZS3.

Others to consider is the LF1 or LX line. But not the FZ as it's too large.

Here's what's important to me...

IQ in daylight. Second would be IQ in lowlight.

Zoom range at least comparable to what the ZS3 provided.

Both jpeg and raw.

Video some what important, but not a big tipping point.

Outside of Panasonic, the Sony RX1003 has my interest.

Ok, any suggestion to get me started?

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1 Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 (Lumix DMC-TZ7) Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS40 (TZ60) Sony RX100
