So long story short I recently sold my Nikon D5300, which, in hindsight, I should have kept at least until after my trip. Now I'm without a camera and don't want to rely on just my iPhone so I need to make a decision fast. The reason I sold my D5300 is mostly because it wasn't a camera I would take absolutely everywhere. The only times I really used it is when I went away on vacation or on long day trips. The camera I'm most leaning towards now is the Sony RX100 III. But what I'm wondering is if that's a smart option considering that I will probably get the iPhone 7, which will likely have a better camera and more closely close the difference in quality between the iPhone and the RX100 series. I've heard the argument that IQ from the iPhone is similar to the RX100 so it's not worth it. But I've also heard the argument that the the IQ from the RX100 is significantly better than the iPhone, making it worthwhile. For $800 though I'm wondering if it would perhaps be smarter to invest in a mirrorless option like the Fujifilm X100T, the Olympus E-M10 II, the Sony Alpha a6300, or even the Sony Alpha A7. I would also like to get IQ that is close to the D5300. I had the D5300 in DC last year and it took excellent photos. Finally, there's the dilemma of not having a whole lot of time to become familiar with the camera before using it this weekend. Please help, Macrumors!
