For those looking for a new camera, this is a good site to compare sizes of various models:
I probably should have looked for that before I bought the G7X II. It's really pretty bulky.
Do not be persecuted by the pompous fedora, balanced by the equilibrium, fortified by the
government's inability to eradicate, or foreshadow—taken from the Hebrew word: foreskin
I also have a a6000, and A7ii. Sony is in a league of their own with travel cameras IMO.
Anyway on to last purchase.
2x plane tickets too
For 8 days Over 4th of July
Got a air bnb right on the beach.
I intentionally bought this one from a reputable place with good CS (Crutchfield), knowing that they'd be easy with returns. I paid more, but I know me. I return ****. It's in my blood, I guess. My dad is even blacklisted at Lowe's for buying "just in case" stuff for projects and then returning it after.
The Sony mirrorless stuff is pretty cool. I am pretty happy with the M43 system right now. If I had to switch, the Sony stuff would be high one the list. That is unless there have been a couple generations of the Pentax KP by then. Then, I would probably jump back into the Pentax world.
Edit - eBay has 20% (up to $50) off on cameras right now. The G7X II can be had for $589 shipped... I paid $689, but mine came with $20 worth of memory card and carrying case nonsense.
Here's a little comparison between my 40D and the G7X II. The 40D has a Tamron 17-50 2.8. The G7X II looks a bit better to my eye. This is with all of the noise reduction and auto stuff turned off.

I bought a plane ticket to Los Angeles to go see Dead and Company at The Hollywood Bowl on May 31 and June 1. Free tickets and a free place to stay in a REALLY nice house in the Hollywood hills...I couldn't pass up the opportunity.
Going to see Dead and Company again in Chicago at Wrigley Field on June 30 and July 1 as well.
And I got a suite to see Iron Maiden in St. Paul on June 16.
My summer concert budget has been blown out of the water. Crossing my fingers that no other "must see" shows are announced anytime soon.
If I keep the G7X, which I think I am (the lens and controls vs. the G9X are winning me over), I do want a warm polarizer for it.
Camera interface is like this
This is 4K if you go over to YouTube

Improving the signal-to-noise ratio
I have my D750, but for simple shots, my cell does a great job.
the best camera is the one you have with you. iphone is always in my pocket, the Olympus M43 is always in the everyday carry and the sony FF is what I bring when I have a purpose. I like cameras with small footprints.
Edit - that LG looks nice. One thing that really sucks about Apple products is the over-simplification and dumbing down of pretty much everything. It's nice, or used to be nice at least in some respects, but it does really limit things like a camera, or hell, even adjusting your snooze length preference. Jerks.

I think I am liking this hiking thing.
Excellent choice, pops.
