I agree with the suggestion that you get out of the fully auto mode and pick the focus point yourself in P mode.  Other than using face detection (which works pretty well), the camera is not going to do nearly as well as you in figuring out the subject on which to focus.

I have not found focus peaking on the RX100 to be nearly as useful it is on my NEX 7.  I need to test it more thoroughly, but for now, I've cut off focus peaking and am simply using the magnify function with DMF.
