These Sony cameras seem to get the most votes for pocket cameras on this forum. A good place to start. I use a Canon G7X Mark II when I don't want to carry around my big DSLR. The zoom is 24-100mm equivalent, f/1.8 to f/2.8. Not a long zoom, but IQ is outstanding for a 1 inch sensor. It does not have a viewfinder, but the touch screen allows you to touch the point where you would like to focus. You can also flip it up to take selfies. Don't laugh. They do serve a purpose.

I will second the opinion of the G7X II. I have this camera and had the Sony Rx100 V. The Sony is a great camera but NOT $500 better than the Cannon. The G7X II has served my purposes well and I enjoy shooting it.

Great Hitchcock classics. These are must see if you never have. Especially Rear Window

Leica is like a religion with those who shoot with them. And yes, if you shelled out $8000 for a mirrorless camera body and had to spend $2400 on a 50 mm lens to take Monochrome images, you'd have religion too.

Maybe just go to Staples and get some self adhesive red dots?

I still have my D7100. I looked at bothโ€” and chose Fuji. I tried the Sony, but it just didnโ€™t resonate with me. If you like retro with easy to use functionality the Fuji may be your choice.

I recently took my Fuji with the 18-55 lens to France for 10days. โ€œOne camera/one lens.โ€ I recommend it for those who enjoy travel and want to take photographs without hiring a Sherpa, stressing about gear....

Which Fuji are you talking about, Lone...the x100f is a fixed 23mm lens

I also would recommend at least the D7100 over the D7000. More up to date specs and less clicks. The features in this camera, or the D7200, would serve you well for several years.

Canon announces the latest addition to their G series. It checks all the boxes I want in a compact, we'll see about performance come November.

For starters, I would experiment with my existing lenses to find a focal length that suits my needs...

They are 2 vastly different cameras. The Sony is much more versatile and has a lot more bells and whistles. The Fuji is much nicer and much easier to use. The Fuji doesn't have scene modes or AUTO mode which is a plus.

Thank you cmcaroffino. I may ask a further question or two the closer I get to purchase.

I found myself in exactly your situation, satisfied with my Nikon D7200 and lens but wanting a smaller camera at times and I narrowed my choices down to the Fuji x100f and the Sony A6300. I finally opted for the Fuji x100f because I liked the choice of optical viewfinder, the film choices especially chrome and acros, the leaf shutter, the retro look etc. but either is an excellent choice and with the Sony you can change lenses where with the Fuji it is a fixed lens so make the decision with you heart and enjoy, either will make great pictures.

Thanks Jerry, you're always helpful.

As you said, you can't make a bad decision here. I like my Sony A6000 for when I want a compact.
More comparison sites -


EDIT: Taking a quick look at, it's no contest - Sony A6000 and A6300 over Fuji big time. Of course, snapsort just compares specifications, not performance. Huge price advantage for Sony, too.

Currently shooting Nikon D7100 with a good array of 4 dx lenses...happy with that and not looking to upgrade in the dslr category. But I have found myself wanting to grab a quick camera, less weight and pieces, for the family special event, vacation, and grand kids without pulling out the Big Bag of Gear.

After researching for few months, I was about ready to pull the trigger on the Fugi X100f, as it rated higher in almost every category in the aps-c compact camera class (I do not want a 1" sensor camera), and with actual shooters/owners who love the camera. Then I thought about the Sony a6300 being aps-c, kind of rangefinder style, and not much bigger with a prime pancake lens. The link below is the comparison on DP Review of the two, which gives me almost a tossup, spec-wise.

So I wanted to defer to the board wisdom, knowledge, thoughts, and actual usage that might help me tilt the scales one way or the other. Both are good cameras and I don't really think either is a bad decision.
