He was referring to the lens size. And on Coolpix A it extends when powered on, so they seem about the same size.

Coolpix is like X100s minus the hybrid viewfinder. RX1 is a marvel of miniaturization but Sony was always good at it. And it comes at a cost - ergonomics and lens vignetting for example, not mentioning the retail price.
