What is the best spare camera for A7, RX100II or NEX5R?

I have A7 and FE35mm and happy with it's superb sharpness.

Though it's smaller than DSLR, but still not small enough to keep in my jacket all the time.

So I'm considering either NEX5R+16-50mm or RX100II (yes, Wifi is important to me).

The size of RX100II is really ideal and I'm not going to buy any extra APSC lens even I buy NEX5R.

But I'm not sure whether the IQ and overall performance of RX100II will be, say, less than 80% of NEX5R kit?

I know the RX100II zeiss lens is about 2 stops faster than 16-50mm, but the difference of non-trivial sensor size is my big concern.
