My wife and I are planning some nice hiking trips this Winter (Phoenix) and Spring (Azores). Having finally gotten around to printing a bunch of smartphone photos (Galaxy S8) from our 2-week England visit last year I am convinced I would be happier with results from a dedicated, compact, travel camera. No DSLR for me. Scouring the camera review sites and Amazon I've pretty much convinced myself on the Panasonic Lumix ZS200. It has a 1" MOS sensor; pocket size factor; ridiculous optical zoom range of 24-360mm; decent EVF; built-in (fill-in) flash; 4K video and...a not-the-best F-stop range of 3.3-64. :( I've looked very hard at the latest, competing Sony RX100 VII, but the $500 price difference is out of line. Other competitors didn't seem to stack up as well either. I was comfortable with my choice until...I came across an old thread that CJ suggested a Four Thirds Sensor Panasonic Lumix LX100 compact travel camera. Much less on the zoom, a tad bigger/heavier, but a much faster F1.7-2.4 lens. All stop...need to look into this as well. Any thoughts out there...?
