I have it and I really like it. At the moment though I can only process the raws in DPP which I'm not fond of. I know Capture One are beta testing their next version so presumably/hopefully it will be supported. I'll report back with more details and images once that issue is resolved.

Mine arrived on Friday. Early days but I already like it a lot. In low light there is nothing in it for image quality compare to my failed Sony RX100 mki ii, but in other use it clips highlights less and the dynamic range seems to be better (pulling detail from shadows). Images also have a DSLR "feel" to them. The focusing is night and day better as you'd expect with dual pixel. For the size increase (jacket pocket, not shirt pocket) I get a much more engaging shooting experience; EVF directly over the lens vs none on the RX100, properly tactile to hold, additional control wheels intuitively placed - so no need to take the camera away from the eye and start using button shortcuts or delving in to menus. The latter is further helped by two custom slots on the mode wheel just like my 7D and 5D iv. Click click selected. Easy. At least for the usage so far I have not noticed image softness compared to the RX100 as reported in reviews.

Edited to add: I am editing in Lightroom Classic CC. Adobe has caught up.

So, very happy so far.

Unfortunately Capture One still isn't supporting it. I shall be exceedingly grumpy if I have to turn to Lightroom to process the raws since I use C1 for everything else. That said, I process minimally anyway and I can cope with DPP for the time being.

Agree with Charlie Victor, I am delighted with low light performance. A lot of reviewers complained about the slow lens, especially at the long end, a but I haven't found it much of a handicap.
