Sounds like a job for a (used) Ricoh GR, ie fixed lens, solid build, good ergonomics, snap-focus, a well-regarded street-shooting lineage and they come in just on yr budget.

Sony RX100 is good (read great) IQ, but not convinced the zoom is sturdy for the job. Mine broke after a year of v careful use. Also is a fiddly, faffy little thing to operate IMO.Posted 5 months agoKamakazieSubscriber
2nd the GX800.
Very small body for a M4/3 and with the collapsible kit lens it’s a great little setup.
Add a couple of the small prime’s when ready and you have a flexible, portable setup that takes excellent photos.
I’d say the lenses on the Sony systems make the package too big for ‘smaller the better’.
Ricoh is a good shout for something a bit different.Posted 5 months ago
