Our review

The RX100 VII is the most capable pocket camera currently on the market. It offers a versatile zoom range and an industry-leading AF implementation, as well as good image quality and smooth, stabilized 4K. However the small maximum aperture of the lens does limit the camera's use in dim light.

Good for: Anyone wishing for a versatile zoom range in a pocket-sized cameras with rock-solid-reliable autofocus. Travel and family photographers, video-enthusiasts and Vloggers.

Not so good for: Anyone who primarily shoots in dim-lighting.
