But, where I'd say to consider the Sony RX100 is for the VI or VII and you want a pocket sports shooter. 200mm, even though slower in aperture, plus the phase detect Sony AF is where that makes sense. But for anything else / you plan on shooting sports less than other things? You guessed it, G5X Mark II is the smarter choice.

If photographing the landscape out of a car on a highway, or out of a fast train, is one of the use cases, does the G5X mkII do poorly? I assume it's not as good as the RX100 mkVII but does it match a G7X mkII ? (I am currently considering the G5X mkII and the G7X mkIII, though I'm afraid to ask about autofocus on the latter.)

It exceeds the G7X Mark II.

I've done what you've described, without issue.

Shutter speed becomes a bigger problem; in fast moving objects like cars and trains, use 1/500 or faster.

Single shot AF may be useful in these cases, too.
