    I am looking for advice .
    I already own a Canon G7 Mark II .
    I now have a need for a second Canon point and shoot .
    One will stay in the house , one will be in the truck .
    Size not Important
    Big Telephoto not important
    My BUDGET says $500 is my upper limit .
    What is the BEST Canon Point and Shoot , that is under $500 ?
    It will probably just be used mainly for taking indoor pics at my house - holidays etc and outdoor pics ( landscape ) around my property .

    You might consider the G9X Mark II. The G9X II has the same 20.1 MP sensor w/Digic 7 (just like your G7X II). It uses the same battery & charger.

    The main difference is the lens.

    G7X II has a 4.2x zoom with 8.8-36.8 mm (in 35mm equivalence it's 24-100mm) with a variable aperture from f/1.8 (at the wide end) to f/2.8 (at the tele end).

    G9X II has a 3x zoom with 10.2-30.6mm (in 35mm equivalence it's 28-84mm) with a variable aperture from f/2 (at the wide end) to f/4.9 (at the tele end).

    So the G9X II doesn't have as much zoom range and it's lens doesn't collect as much light.

    Your current G7X II is the better of the two... but the G9X II is a lot cheaper (about $450 new vs. about $680 new for your current camera).

    There is really not much point in getting a point and shoot camera these days. Just use your cell phone. If you want get some add on lenses like the moment lenses for the phone.

    Exactly, Nikon just closed a factory with their point&shoot. The market is pretty much dead. For that price you can get either very good camera phone (if you need portability) or even mirrorless/dslr (if you want higher quality).
