Especially since this lens is stuck to the body and you'll have to dispose (or sell) it after x years of use and you cant retain the lens and buy another body.  In future, you'll have to lose the entire USD 1300 investment and cough up another USD 1300 to buy the RX20 or RX30 in 3-5 years time.  Not very practical compared with ILCs.

For the RX100, it made sense as the price is still in the USD 600+ 700+ range.  But for USD 1300?  Crazy..
