The Sony RX10 has the same 20mp sensor as the Sony RX100 II that is well thought of and it has an equivalent 24-200mm f2.8 Zeiss lens. Having a package that includes the equivalent of a 24-70mm f2.8 and 70-200mm f2.8 makes the $1200 price easier to take.

$1200 RX10

vs.

$1000 GX7
$1300 12-35mm f2.8
$1500 35-100mm f2.8

You can't change the lens on the RX10, but a lot of m4/3 people would be quite happy, I think, even if all they had were the 12-35mm and 35-100mm for their m4/3 camera.

Anyone who is willing to buy a GX7, 12-35 and 35-100 isn't going to be happy with the RX10. These are completely different cameras. Anyone who guys the 12-35 and 35-100 is going to have other lenses. The RX10 may be a better choice for some users, but to suggest that people are making a choice between these to options is a bit crazy.
