    It is quite useless to compare these cameras. If Canon has a competitor for the RX100-3, it is the G7X.

    Compared to RX100-3, the G9X has no tilting display, is cheaper and much smaller.

      We are comparing these two camera since both the camera uses same sensor and the newly announced G9X camera cost less than the older RX100M 3.
