Bill,

You keep writing HX, I, and others are convinced you mean RX i.e. rx100m3 or rx100m6.

I have both the rx100m3 (24-70mm starts f1.8) (just repaired) and rx100m6, (24-200mm starts f2.8). I will bring them both, you can compare them and decide before the return period ends.

Because you have RX10m4 for reach, AND because you will carry and use that size camera, I would return the m6 and get the m3, shorter range but wonderful f1.8 lens.

You have the PDCD focus system in the RX10m4, combined with it's 600mm reach, thus, the rx100m3 having only CD focus system, which you already know is damn good, is not a limitation.

Me, unwilling to carry/use a big RX10m4, the rx100m6's greater reach is very desirable. However, because I missed the brighter lens, I just decided to fix my rx100m3.

RX10m4 paired with any bright short range rx100 (1,2,3,4,5) is a terrific pairing, especially for travel and a nice mix of portability.

Yes I know I keep saying hx but I'm getting old. Well I ordered the RX100 III for $600 and received RX100 VI ($1000) for that price and ordered a 2 year replacement policy so after a while I'll send in the RX100 III under warranty! Done that before!
