For stealthiness and unobtrusiveness, either will do.  The A6000 is a tad smaller, but if you went to a store that displayed both, you might find the difference isn't as large as you may think.  The A7 with the FE 35 is a huge difference from your Nikon setup.

But if you want a REAL difference in obtrusiveness, you already own the perfect camera - RX100.

It all comes down to cost, and what you expect the final image quality to be.  If you want something that is close to your Nikon, the A7 fits that bill.  If you went that way, you may find (as others have) that the A7 is more of a replacement for the Nikon.  If you see that as any sort of possibility, the A7 is the way to go.

Ultimate cost issues aside - coming from a d800... and considering you already own an RX100... the A6000 doesn't make a lot of sense.
