Dunno, I don't have either, but these specs are intriguing:

LX7:       298g, 110x68x46mm, 1/1.7" (7.44x5.58mm) sensor, 10mp, 24-90mm efl.

RX100:   240g, 102x59x36mm, 1" (13.2x8.8mm) sensor, 20mp, 28-100mm efl.

One might say that the Sony's sensor area/weight ratio is impressive.

The sensor specs favor the RX100 but the brighter and sharper LX7 lens often makes up for its lesser sensor.  Therefore, one can often get very similar results with either.  If either camera meets your focal length needs, then price would favor the LX7.
