Default RX10 IV

I'm transitioning from Canon to Sony by starting with this camera. Any tips?

Bill, I can't comment on this particular camera but I switched to Sony A6000 a few years back and have been very satisfied with the product.

I'm looking to go lighter and will transition completely over the next couple of years hopefully.

Here's a tip:

Thaz a self contained camera, not a component of
a system. So it's not necessarily related to what is
gonna replace your current Canon. Both Nikon and
Canon will move on from SLR to compete with Sony
and do it in about a year. So keep an open mind as
all that unfolds, especially if you have an excellent
bag of EF lenses.

I realize it's self contained but menus and dealing with Sony files will be a help. I will believe Canon going that direction when I see it. Also I would think there would be a hill to climb with development. I would love to see Canon with smaller equipment that can do what my current equip does.

Bad copy?
I like the RX10 iv. Regardless of whether or not you completely switch to Sony it is a great camera. Also it is a similar menu and functional system to their mirrorless stuff.
Not many other cameras give you such quality at 600mm, and no other point and shoots have the focus speed, frames per second or image quality this camera offers. It is a lot of fun to carry so much camera in a easy to carry size.

We will see. Sony rep wanted to look at it so I sent it to them. Should be back in a week.

Everything you mentioned is true of course and part of what drew me to the camera. I do plan to order an A7R III this next week so I'm heading toward Sony quickly.
