Tha Mk 1 is made in Japan and built like a tank.

The Mk 2 is made in China ...

I got a brand spanking new RX100 for 440$ - and the flip screen and hot shoe I wasn't interested in.

Only the very early Mk1s were made in Japan.  The build quality between the MIJ and MIC cameras is nada.  In fact, if you look at posts about problem cameras, there were more with the MIJ cameras than later MIC cameras...I would attribute that to teething problems, but maybe the Japanese just can't put a camera together as well as the Chinese?
