    And no touchscreen to take advantage of that fast PDAF while shooting video. Odd.

    Sony has this weird issue with touchscreens. These gradual improvements to the original RX100 have produced an amazing pocket camera but the touch screen is the last hurdle. I know some hate the touchscreen but I suspect many more want one.

    Interesting that the a6500 has the touch screen. Guess maybe they figure it will be a good selling point for VI?

    Interesting point. I don't know why else they have been so slow to put this on P&S.

    I think that without a proper grip area, it is quite difficult to use a touchscreen.

    Or maybe I'm just doing it wrong.

    You may be right, but that's just another sale, add the AG-R2 and you have a better grip.
