I have the RX100 VII. I have only had a chance to use it once last year for a family gathering prior to the pandemic. For outdoor pictures of people so far I am satisfied with it. I'll probably use it mainly for travel when I need to travel light.

I managed to get my hands on a RX100 VI and I must admit I found it very small and a bit un-comfortable to use. I kept feeling like I was going to drop it.

It's a very good camera, with good accurate focus and image quality, so as a pocket camera it would be great, but it just doesn't feel right in my hands.

Thanks again for your input.

Yeah, the camera is about the size of a deck of cards, and the buttons are small. I use this case, which helps.

I bought an RX100II for aud $250 second hand. It was bought with the aim of being a thing I could carry while on the bike and that I wouldn't be too concerned about if I killed it. When I was looking it was the sweet spot for price/performance and my needs but it took me a while to find one at a good price on ebay. Turned out it was in very good condition with a case and two cards. Looked like it had been barely used. I use it with a wrist strap so I don't accidentally drop it. And, it goes everywhere which was the point.

Image quality is OK for social or snapshots, certainly better than my phone. Works well and I like it and I've taken some nice shots with it. But IQ is not going to be as awesome as your bigger cams owing to sensor size. I travel with a full sized cam and lenses on holidays (and the RX100), but this camera got me out of jail when a lens failed on my last trip. Images not as awesome as a full sized cam, but way better than none at all. And even with the reduced focal length compared to the VI/VII, the 100mm seemed plenty. So 200mm should be even better.

These cams are built well and likely to be a thing that lasts for decades. Battery life is never an issue.

The VI/VII are an entirely different animal of course to what I bought with extended focal length and so one, but wicked expensive as well. If the price doesn't scare you, I'd say go for it, but compare to the VI first and see if the changes between them are worth the $$$ to you.

This is typical of images with the RX100II. They tend to be snapshots, because you can shoot anywhere anytime and I do. But ultimately they are short on real detail as you might reasonably expect.



This one is RAW, processed with ON1 and I've cropped into it slightly. VI/VII should be somewhat better.
