RX100II if you want a truly small pocket camera with very good IQ. Otherwise, might as well get a good ILC. Some size comparisons to consider:

http://j.mp/MOk0mO (G1XII vs Sony A6000 & Olympus EM10)

Also note G1XII is 533 grams; over twice the weight of most pocket cameras.

IMO if you're looking something as big, heavy and costly as G1XII, you might as well look at CSC's like Sony NEX/A6000, Olympus EM(5 or 10) and Fuji X which will give you much more versatility and options, as well as bigger sensors (except for M43).

What happens to the weight/size of the Olympus once you put a 12-35 or 35-100 Pany lens on it?

What happens to the price once you add the cost of each of those lenses to the Olympus? And, what if that critical moment comes up and you have the wrong lens on at that time, missed shot?

Also, the price goes up to $2,900 and you have slower lenses (at the low end) and less reach, right? I'm not sure that a the IQ difference between the Canon vs Oly will be worth $2,100. Just saying
