Read ALL previous threads on the subject.

Coming from D500 + 35 1.8, 85 1.8, 11-16 2.8, 200-500.

Barely use it other than special occasions, also got rid of smartphone, and want something that fit in jacket pocket that I'll be happy with.

Taking family pictures at home, and wildlife and landscape outdoor.

Read A LOT, and decided on RX100VII.

Love it, Great outdoor, but indoor I usually have to go above ISO 400 which introduce noise that drive me nuts. Also kids not look even close to the nice pictures of the D500.

Tried today the X100v, It's AMAZING for indoor, kids, low light, etc. Beautiful skin tone, great noiseless photos at ISO 3200, Great blurred background, No need for flesh and no noise!

BUT, outdoor, it's not nice as RX100, No zoom and No really wide angle, Not focusing good enough for wildlife, Videos are no good (even though it's not a priority for me).

What should I do???

Pocketability is a must for me, otherwise I'll take the D500.

Great kids photos in low light is important, but zoom and nice colorful photos outdoor is also important...

Is there a solution???

Have you looked at the Fuji XE3? That plus the 18mm f2 & 27mm f2.8 would be quite's selling for quite cheap. You can add more primes or zooms later depending on your needs. (or wait for the upcoming xe4)
