Just because the RX is smaller and lighter doesn't mean they aimed lower. Its sensor and lens can give comparable and often better results than the G1 X.

I'd like to see that.
Canon sensors are lacking in dynamic range compared to others. Besides, an RX100 in the pocket and with you beats a G1 X brick left at home every time!

A G1X is travelling light for me, I wouldn't put either in a pocket except maybe a coat pocket so the size difference is neither here nor there for me personally. Shooting in 14 bit raw doesn't leave me lacking for dynamic range either, I just bracket if necessary. The colour from the Sony sensors doesn't float my boat either, so I guess it depends on what aspects of image quality matter most to you. Extra dynamic range isn't a boon to me if colour and skin tones are off, something that will affect every shot, not just the odd shot here and there. I always find Sony colours too orange and cyan for my taste whereas Canon seems to nail colours to my eyes. The lens on the G1X is also stellar, not something I hear about the RX100 from many reports. There are many reasons for me to choose the G1X over the RX100 and I haven't been disappointed, I'm sure it works the other way for others as well.
