Looking for a compact camera to take with me while riding on my bicycle.

I am looking for a compact camera to take with me while riding on my bicycle.
Below is the criteria that I would like it to have, desired price around $500.
I already have a high end camera (Nikon D800E & Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens).

1) 20.1MP
2) Ability to shoot in RAW
3) Larger Viewfinder
4) Large grip a plus
5) Zoom Lens
6) Removable lens not needed
7) Video not needed

Here is my list so far.

Nikon Coolpix A900
+ High zoom ratio
- No RAW option

Panasonic TZ100 / SZ100
+ Top sensor-size-to-lens ratio
- Small viewfinder
- Narrow aperture at telephoto end

Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II
+ Good lens range
- Slightly soft images at wide end

Panasonic LX100
+ Only compact with MFT sensor
+ Fast lens
- 'Only' 16MP
- Starting to show its age

Panasonic LX15 / LX10
+ Large sensor in tiny body
+ Great image and video quality
- No viewfinder
- Lack of integrated ND filter

Sony Alpha a6000
+ High quality, responsive viewfinder
+ Good JPEGs with well-judged sharpening
- Flash exposures often misjudged
- Noise reduction can be a bit heavy-handed
- No touchscreen
- Lens range not as well developed as rival systems

Canon PowerShot G7 X Nikon D800E Panasonic LX10
