I own both cameras (and, FWIW, I think the 24-70 L II is amazing).  Frustratingly, the RX1 files are better than the Canon 5D mk III files. Frustratingly, the Canon's focussing is better than the RX1's.

My kids are used to a camera in their faces -- 5D or RX1 or whatever.  Carrying weight doesn't matter either -- carry the damn camera (and for what its worth, the EVF on the RX1 makes it quite awkward to pull out of the bag quickly.)  If I have to get the shot, I take the 5D and then futz with the file.  If it's just an everyday outing, the RX1 is usually (but not always) the one in the bag -- and the files are lovely.

Look, I don't mean to be glib, but both are a good idea.  But if you're going to get just one, well, it doesn't matter which -- just get it, and keep shooting, over and over, and get those amazing moments of your children.
