From the review the Sony RX 100 VII has

Pros;

  • Industry-leading autofocus implementation
  • Good JPEG color and detail
  • Excellent dynamic range
  • Quality lens with a hugely flexible range
  • Stabilized 4K video with minimal rolling shutter
  • 20 frames per second shooting
  • No blackout during bursts
  • Good viewfinder
  • Mic socket
  • Intervalometer
  • Pocketable
  • USB-charging

Cons;

  • Complex user interface
  • Autofocus menu options appear complicated
  • Low-light performance limited by 'slow' lens
  • Default out-of-box settings don't encourage use of best features
  • Lack of ND filter (limiting for video)
  • Buffer is slow to clear due to UHS-I slot
  • Touchscreen cannot be used to navigate menu/function menu
  • Nowhere to mount a microphone
  • No in-camera Raw conversion
  • No external charger included
  • Slippery camera body
  • Tiny control points
  • Pricey

Conclusion;

The RX100 VII is the most capable pocket camera currently on the market. It offers a versatile zoom range and an industry-leading AF implementation, as well as good image quality and smooth, stabilized 4K. However the small maximum aperture of the lens does limit the camera's use in dim light.
