Which compact camera?

I've got a DSLR, and a Samsung S8, so can use those for most things, but what I don't have is a decent compact what I can stick in my pocket, for those times you want decent photos, but don't want to carry a heavy DLSR around.

Seemingly I can't have a decent zoom, along with something that I can get shallow DOF and a 1" sensor so been looking at a few cameras close to what I want.

I've pretty much narrowed it down to RX100 II (£299 in currys at the moment), the G7 X II, around £450-500, G9 X II £400ish. My first choice would have probably been the Panasonic TZ100 as it has 10x optical zoom, but all reviews say it won't fit in pockets, and as thats the whole point of getting something smaller, I've ruled it out, having said that, I haven't physically seen one. I'm leaning towards the g7x II at the moment.

Just wondered if anyone has used any of these and could comment on what they are like? Most the time it will be used on days out, as an example, going to Edinburgh zoo in June, last time I went I took a panasonic bridge camera with me, and that was too much to be lumping around all day (bearing in mind we left the house at 6am and didn't get back till about 11pm), so certainly wouldn't want a DSLR with lenses this time. Just a bit worried the zoom on them won't be good enough.

Many thanks
