I really the LX100 MKI for its hands-on operation. However I would not consider the LX100 a "pocketable" compact; in fact I find it too bulky (overall body/ lens depth) to comfortably carry in a belt-type case.

Also for myself I find the 75mm EFL too short for travel, hence I got the ZS100 to complement the LX100 as the ZS100 is pocketable and can be carried in a belt-type case, and the ZS100 uses the same battery as the LX100.

If you truly want a "pocketable" travel compact, IMHO its hard to beat the RX100 VI with its f/2.8-4.5 24-200mm EFL if you don't mind the $1,198.00 price.

You can easily do you own quick comparisons.

The ZS100 probably the current best 'bang-for-the-buck', but IMHO to get optimum IQ need to shoot RAW.

Right now you can get the ZS100 with the Panasonic DMW-BLG10 Li-Ion Battery & Charger Travel Bundle from B&H Photo for $497.99 (includes free shipping) HERE .

Thanks for all of the thought you put into this and all of the detail. Perhaps I should buy my wife a ZS100 to compliment whatever I end up carrying.

I looked at the ZS100 and the Sony RX100 IV, but I really love the manual controls of the LX100 series and to a lesser extent the LX7. I had an LX3 before the LX7, so I find the ergonomics very natural now.

Thanks again for the input.
