Re: RX100 VI vs HX99 for a new travel compact zoom?

My RX100 has died on me a couple of days ago after 7 years of reliable use. It travelled with me pretty much everywhere as a backup or when it was impractical to bring my full frame A7 gear. So I’m now researching a replacement. I like Sony cameras but have no particular brand fidelity when it comes to compact zooms.

Though I’ve narrowed down to 2 options which I can afford:

- RX100 mk VI

- HX99

Has anyone had experience with both cameras? What about zoom quality vs range? Would 200mm on the mk VI be better than 720mm on the HX99 for the same subject?

Any advices and thoughts would be very helpful.


Which camera did you buy EaskClick?  How did it compare to the original RX100?
