DXOMark is slightly disappointed in the GM1's sensor.

The RX100 ll holds up surprisingly well.

The GX7's sensor is the better one.

The Imaging Resource findings differ somewhat from DxO's. Comparing the GM1 with the RX100II at ISO1600, they say "this is where the 1-inch-type sensor of the RX100 II starts to lose ground. It beats most other non-ILC compacts currently on the market, but can't keep pace with the GM1's much larger sensor as ISO rises."

About the GX7 vs. GM1 differences: given that according to Panasonic these cameras have the same--not just similar--sensor and associated circuitry, I wonder if we're just looking at sample variation, in that two samples of either camera might show differences of this magnitude.  In all of the Imaging Resources comparisons, at all ISOs tested, they describe the performance of these cameras as "virtually identical."
