Really? More pixels in less space, that should be worse not better... Plus the Sony sensor seems to use more pixels to make the video image than the Panasonic cameras, which should be worse still...

In silicon engineering it's not about the size of the features but the overall size of the chip that determines power consumption. Also I've seen no evidence of the Sony camera using a higher sampling rate.

As for heat dissipation I've lost count of the number of times I've heard about sony cameras overheating, never once heard of a Panasonic camera doing that. Now I'm not saying the RX100 overheats, just that's it seems to be something Panasonic are more concerned about.
