The IC-7000 uses composite video. Some might prefer a larger display for the rig for base use.

I know it's not on your short list, but if I were you I would rather save up/sell stuff and buy the IC-7300. It is way better, built-in sound card and ATU that the others don't have. New technology - SDR. The rigs you are looking at are very small - I use the IC-7000 in my mobile and it is perfect for that. The price point of the IC-7300 is extremely good considering what you get.

I like the 7300 a lot but not enough to sell my 756 Pro III.   The itch for the 7000/7100 is because I want a second radio with all mode VHF/UHF. If the 7300 had this I'd be all over it.  Maybe next year.  Keep in mind that the 7300 is first generation SDR for Icom. It should get even better from here. 

I find that it's lot cheaper to ride a wave or two behind trending technology.  Fewer bugs that way and plenty of available knowledge.

My thoughts exactly...I have the IC-7200 and love it; I am sure I'd really enjoy the 7300, but I may just wait until the IC-7610 comes out and go with it to see if they improve upon the features and work out any SDR bugs.
