The lens, with twice the number of elements (14 versus 7 in the Sony), should be far better. That’s what all that bulk gets you.

The number of elements doesn't necessarily directly equate to optical quality.

indeed, it could also suggest how much effort is required to get this lens spec out of such a relatively small package. Lots of elements could have a negative effect on internal reflections, copy variation and wear-and-tear (more moving elements for IF/AS/zoom).

IMHO compared to the RX100 the lens should be the big selling point, IF it delivers on optical quality. I think I would prefer a current 20 MP 1 inch Sony sensor over a 1.5 inch 13 MP Canon sensor, but the lens is more important.
