Sony RX100M2 Image Quality

I am considering getting an RX100M2. I was looking at some of the test images from the review, and what I see is puzzling:

Sony RX100M2 Portrait Test (ISO 200)

Canon G15 Portrait Test (ISO 200)

The Canon G15 has a much smaller sensor, yet its portrait test images look much sharper and nicer than those of the RX100M2 at lower ISO levels. Canon's images degrade more quickly at higher ISO levels, but they are still a bit better than the Sony images.

I thought perhaps the Sony image is out of focus, but the focusing pattern in the middle of the image seems to be in focus, just like in the Canon image. Does anyone know what may be going on here? I'm puzzled by these results.

Could this be a lens issue?
