I posted some photos taken with the Canon G1X Mark II from Maryland's Eastern Shore in another thread in this forum.  On my way down, I stopped at a Best Buy and picked up a Sony RX100M2, just to have a compact zoom lens camera that would fit in my pocket as a companion to my G1X Mark II (which is too large to fit in a pocket, of course).  I must admit, examining the image files generated by both of similar scenes, there isn't much difference between the two.  They both do a really good job, and both have similar image quality in most situations that I shot in.  Note that I did not do a controlled comparison between the two, as that wasn't my goal - just sharing my impressions.  I'll post a few more shots of similar scenes taken with the two.  I'm not going to post 100% crops, because that's been done already.  In my own shots, viewing at 100%, the RX100M2 is a little less sharp and defined (as would be expected), but otherwise, they look close to the same.
