Well i may pay $1000 for a high end version with very good lens and much improved EVF.

I have not seen any proof that full frame sensors have to be too expensive, everyone here just seems to assume that. What proof do you have? The fact that they are currently only used in very expensive camera's means nothing.

Due to defect rates, prices of any electronic chips roughly scale at least with the square of the area (or worse!). That makes a 35mm sensor at least 4x as expensive as an APS sized one. Compared to the sensor of the RX-100 we are probably looking at a 10x price difference.
