I wouldn't argue with any of your points. The 24mm is certainly an advantage, although I find the f1.8 at the wide end to be very useful in dull conditions (the trick is to remember to shoot wide when the light is low, then if it's not tight enough to use the 20MP to zoom by cropping).

I've never seen the RX100 AF as a limitation in any way speed-wise, "lightning fast" might be overdoing it a bit, but I did do a quick test while writing my post and it focused almost instantly. I will agree others may be faster, but I don't think it was an issue anyone should worry about (which other posts seemed to suggest). It also has an AF assist light for when it's really dull, although obviously that slows things down a bit.
