One thread of my photographic history is an endless succession of compact cameras. When young and impecunious, I paid
close attention to compact film cameras. I was concerned about focusing, and dreamt of a pocketable RF camera. There
were a couple I considered, but I didn't buy one until the Oly XA.
The XA is a marvel of design and execution. I loved everything about it, but
the fixed FL, which drove me crazy. :-)
Somewhere in the parade of a dozen or so fixed lens compacts and 10 interchangeable compact bodies, I tried a Rollei 35.
Nope, single FL and focus by guesstimate weren't for me.
As compact cameras got better and their zooms got longer, I liked them better. When Panny added EVFs to their better
compacts, I really liked them. Then Sony added an EVF to the RX100.
I know, I know, bigger sensors are better. But, you know, I spend a lot of time inside image files. I simply don't think
about whether they are 16 MP 4/3", 20 MP 4/3" or 24 MP FF. They all process the same and give the same sort of results.
In decent light, that applies to the 1" sensors in Panny ZS200 and Sony RX10 IV, as well.
