Wow!

Spectacular image.

I have a Sony RX100-2.

Suggest you consider ergonomics. And Menus.

I added a grip to my Sony the first day I used it; if a good grip wasn't available I would have taken it back.  It's like carrying a wet bar of soap. Slippery.

Eronomics.

The strap loops on the sony are so small! I broke one of the strap connectors and threw both away.  I believe a wrist strap is essential. I use a Peak Design wrist strap, with their 3rd generation connector. BTW that connector was recalled by Peak Design and replaced.

Menus.

Oh my.  Sony.  It takes a while to learn how to navigate through the menus.  There's a learning curve.  I didn't find it intuitive. I read a lot.

Elliott Newcomb has taught me a lot here. Implementing his suggestions has made me much happier with the RX100-2.

I understand that the Sony RX100-7 has an incredible autofocus system. I can't afford that camera.

Have you considered an Olympus Tough camera?
