Re: Before I sell my GR....

I definitely wouldn't go with the RX100 if you've gotten used to the corner-to-corner sharpness, high ISO performance, and dynamic range of the GR. All of those things are much, much worse on the RX100.

For what it's worth, I'm currently on a short European trip, and I'm carrying a GR with the GW-3 21mm adapter and a Sony RX1. While I would definitely have liked a tele lens on one or two occasions (to take pictures of incredibly exciting sheep), I don't feel like I've missed anything for not having one. The wide-angle stuff has always been much more useful to me in Europe.

My suggestion would be to pick up the GW-3 for the GR and then replace your travel zoom with some camera/lens combo that's give you good low-light performance. An E-PL5 with a Panasonic 20/1.7 or Olympus 45/1.8 would be good options. Maybe a NEX-5n with the Sony 50/1.8?
