Kevin, nice review.
I have owned several versions of the Sony RX100 over the years. When it came out, I upgraded to the RX100VII for the longer zoom lens. It’s an amazing camera.
I took this camera along with my Leica M10-P with Summilux 35mm lens on a two week vacation to Scotland and Ireland in late 2019. I took a number of images with the Sony where I needed the reach of the zoom. The resulting images were very nice although you can definitely see the lens IQ limitations compared to the Leica Summilux. However, if I only had the Leica, I would have not been able to capture the images that I did with the Sony.
It’s a fantastic, although expensive, capable point and shoot camera. The only issue with these small $1,000+ cameras is that I had an older one which my wife dropped which damaged the turning ring around the lens barrel. I sent it in for repair and was told that it is unrepairable and that I should buy a new camera, which I did, unfortunately. I bought the Sony leather case for the replacement Sony RX100V for my wife as added protection. So far, so good.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this capable camera.

I have had each RX100 too. It’s the camera to have with all the time. Very capable. Sometimes you just don’t need the big camera.
