Good points.

I will say that the RX100 is a great option for S100 users who love everything about it but want still greater IQ potential.

I'll add a few more reasons why you'll be happy with your decision. First, the G1X lens has superior performance at all focal lengths. The RX100 lens is loaded with optical compromises. It's a well-known fact that the corners are soft at full wide, at max aperture, and that it has a green color cast in the corners at full tele. So, in effect, it's really an f/2.8 lens with an adjusted zoom range of 28-80mm. In the end, you end up paying a heck of a premium for that 20mp sensor, which is still smaller than the G1X sensor.
