the only advantage for nikon p520 are 120 fps and gps but both advantages are not important because 120fps is poor quality video (notHD or dvd quality) and gps uses too much battery.

There is no meaning in making a comparsion JUST according to the specifications!

Just a summarization of the catalogue?

The real world experience is more important.

For example, the zooming via lens ring of the Sony HX300,to me,has much a better feeling of control.
