Peiasdf: I'd go with a RX1.
The RX1 is an amazing camera
discbrake: Easiest pick. No brainer. Sony RX1R hands down. Full-Frame sensor with 35mm F/2.0 Zeiss lens. Perfect combination.
Superior IQ? Enlighten me please as to which camera you are referring to?
MMS: Why does the GM1 get a Gold Award with 78% but the Sony RX100M2 gets a Silver Award with 79%???
For lack of better words....that's LAME!
piticoto: dpreview staff should know better about political scene of the world before picking someone's photographic work in the neighboring country because "a picture is wort a thousand words". Tamas Dezso was documenting since 2011, with pictures in 2011, 2012 and 2013. He was paid to do this work. Who paid him had a purpose and the photographer needed to know what the "employer" wanted/wants. Or if he wasn't paid then he had a nationalist agenda.
That would be a tremendous!!! I would love to see that.

Exactly....FULL FRAME in a very small package with an awesome Zeiss lens.
Seagull67: The best fixed lens camera is probably the iPhone 5. Literally anyone can now take an excellent photo using it & applying an Instagram filter, you can make calls, email on it and browse the web too. Can't do that on any of the above, but the 100XS is a very lovely 'dad necklace', goes well with a Harris Tweed jacket.
If you are going that route, then I would take the HTC One, Galaxy 4 or the Nokia 1020 over the IPhone 5 any day.
Hands down Sony RX1R. Smallest FULL FRAME camera in the world with an amazing lens, DXO score of 93!
