Point & Shoot w/ Excellent IQ & Macro, pls?

Hello Photo Experts!

I had a mishap this vacation, and now need a new camera.
I'm settled on a small camera with a built in lens. My past two were:
Olympus xz-1 (1/1.63 sensor, 10MP, 1.8f)
Panasonic LX-100 (4/3 sensor, 13MP, 1.7f)

https://cameradecision.com/compare/O...umix-DMC-LX100

The Olympus was just a little smaller, which I liked. The Panasonic gave better macro pics of forest mushrooms, etc.
The Ricoh GR3 is interesting, with an APS-C sensor & 24MP, but it has a 2.8 lens, compared to the 1.7 Panny.

I shoot lots of forest shots, many with a dog in them. I will probably depend on the JPG program, since when I play with RAW pics they only get worse.
Some things that confuse me are the sensor size vs MP count vs aperture size....

Other contenders I see:
Fuji 100V or F (a bit big, but great pics?)
Sony RX100 x (smaller sensor, but good reviews)

TIA! Murf

Hi Jason,

I got a Fuji x100v. Biggest sensor (biggest body!), 2.0f fixed lens. I'm a sucker for nice pics, and this camera is pretty much at the top of the "pocket camera" group for IQ. Now I'm busy buying filters, batteries, & a case.
We will be going to look at leaves next week so I'll be able to play with the new Fuji, and I promise not to drive away with this camera on the roof....

That's great man. The X100V is a pretty distinct camera, for sure. The f2 aperture is nice.
