I agree with everyone it is amazing to get good video in a small package, but this is also acomplished in just-as-small video cameras, with higher quality.

The problem with your argument is a consumer video camera like a Canon VIXIA or Panasonic HS900 does not have higher quality video than the RX100. You get more DOF control, and much better low-light with the larger sensor RX100, not to mention 1080p60 for smooth slow-mo.

Things like shallow DOF, and low-light are one of the main reasons why consumer video cameras are a dying bread, with little application beyond home movies.

Here is the review of the RX100 from EOSHD

For stills, I got rid of my wonderful X10 and ordered an RX100 not so much for the stills, but because the RX100 seems to be a truly fantastic video camera and an outstanding stills camera.
