Well. I can handle iMovie if it helps for the videos and I'm very good at Lightroom Classic if its needed for the pics.

This shows a side-by-side comparison:
Similar ISO, but the Sony has the larger sensor. So on paper the Sony would be better. But, it's never about one issue.
For the pics, the exact model you use of the RX will matter less. (Although, I think the RX100 II has a better lens than the subsequent models for underwater use, but the RX100 V and up uses a far better autofocus system.)

In the end it comes down to what you're trying to achieve. If you didn't already have a decent 4k capable underwater camera I'd say go for it, but don't dismiss the quality improvement you can make by just zonking down your TG 5 4k footage to 1080 or even 720. I honestly think you'll be disappointed with the RX1000 III for video bearing in mind it was released 6 years ago.
Also, up until the RX100 VI(?) the same stock housing would fit all the RX variants (which really future proofed it) - now it will only work up to the V. So it's not like you can buy the housing and upgrade to the latest model if you are disappointed in the III.
Hope that helps.

Thanks so much for all the answers.
As it feels now after all the reviews you've show me I probably think I'll stick to my Olympus TG-5 for underwater photography and filming
However, I consider buying
for better lighting and
for better hand holding
What do you think about that?
Please come up with suggestions for other products in the same areas of use
Thanks in advance
