Come on guys, the RX100 might be the "best" but if it's $650 and the OP's budget is $200 it's not really in the running.

Particularly when the OP bought something else five months ago?

But for $200, can't really complain. It does use standard alkaline batteries and eats through them( can always get rechargeable ones).

Any other suggestions? I know Canon and Nikon are considered to be among the best of camera makers right now. I would probably put the budget at $300.

EDIT: What about the Nikon S9500 and the Canon SX280 HS?
The Panasonic GX7 is fantastic. Micro 4/3 system. Not cheap, but the image quality is great and the handling is excellent.
