Need Opinions on Upgrade from LX7

I'm a M43 shooter--I've owned GH's and now have G85.  I do a mix of stills and video.

I like to have a small, almost pocketable camera as a 2nd body.  I currently have D-Lux 6 (LX7) and while most of the time I use the LCD, it is nice to bring the EVF with me and have that option.

I'm looking to upgrade from the D-Lux and my options are:

small sensor ZS's;  1" sensor:  LX10 or ZS100/200;  or LX100.

I would prioritize a fast lens over the "travel zoom" capability.  So, LX10 would be perfect except that is has no EVF option.  I can't understand why this camera doesn't have an EVF when ZS line does and GM5 did.

I would have been thrilled if Panny put a 1" sensor in the LX7 body with touch screen and hotshoe.

So, my questions:

what is best upgrade from LX7/Dux-6?

Does anyone think the LX10 will be updated to include an EVF?

for LX10 users, do you have any regrets?   Do you miss EVF?
