Agree! 
A mate has the x-100.  Nice cam (swings and roundabouts there).
Side by side? The OMD plus one of 12,17,15,45  primes is easily pocketable (at least in winter)  X-100 is absolutely not.  
Placed side by side, for all but pixel-peepers the IQ difference pales compared to the size difference.  Of course if you have a lot of loot, get both.  
Otherwise just enjoy your compact travel photography ..
I do.
