I would not take any notice of image quality arguments. The 5d3 plus 24-70 is a combo used by pros, so the image quality is good enough. The rx1 focus is slower than the 5diii but manual focus with focus peaking is great and pretty fast. Auto focus on rx1 is slowish but accurate and I would expect a firmware update to improve this. I like the point that as your kids grow up and potentially take up sport you might want to go telephoto, which you can only do with the the canon. My opinion is that 35mm focal length is perfect for your chosen subject and you'll take rx1 to more things. Or for the same sort of money you could get fujix100s and Full frame canon 6d with sigma 24-70.
