If the RX100 cannot do this, then why am I pay 3x the price for this point and shoot camera compared to others? Is it really only just for the IQ?

You pay the price premium because you have DSLR-like high-ISO capabilities and amazingly fast autofocus in a compact body. Also the RX100 can focus in a very dimly lit conditions which is also good. The LCD is great too, it can be seen even in sunny snowy weather. The body of the camera is also made from durable metal (it might seem like plastic at first glance)
