Sure, but at least the RX100 has a telephoto end right, even if it is slow. Your 16mm on C3 wouldn't have that tele at all Obviously every option is a compromise. I can surely get better results out of 5N by putting appropriate lenses on it. The RX100 can't come close to what I get out of my 5N + Minolta MD 50mm 1.4. However I can't think of any solution with 5N / C3 which is close to RX100 in size and still gives the flexibility of zoom along with significantly better quality than RX100. Its just a different tradeoff. Neither camera can replace the other one.

I considered the r100 before I bought my c3

I liked the small size of the 100 and the control ring near the lens.

But I couldn't get past the lens itself. Only goes to 28 (eq) and while fast at 28, pretty slow at tele.

Very pleased with my c3 so far. Just got my 16mm in today. So excited!
