That logic is only relevant to DOF calculation not light gathering ability which is what this discussion is centered around.

If you perceive the multiplier as relevant to the effective lens speed or brightness as some refer that is an incorrect logic and one I have fallen for in the past. If you look at my previous post, you will find a link to that discussion. As far as light gathering ability per pixel f1.8 is indeed f1.8 and f3.5 is still that. NEX compensates by having a better sensor but the actual lens is faster on the RX100 across the entire range, but aside from the smallest focal lengh the NEX kit plus APS-C combo will be better.
