Nice, 1/1.7" BSI sensor should perform about the same as the larger 1" sensor in the RX100 and Nikon 1 in terms of noise, and the large aperture lens should mean depth of field isn't much deeper.

That's wishful thinking. BSI does not help that much, especially not with the pixel size of 12 MP 1/1.7" (BSI gives the most benefits in really small pixel sensors like 8 MP 1/3.2" typically used in phone cameras or 12-16 MP 1/2.3" in compacts). Nikon CX has 2.7 times larger sensor area than 1/1.7" sensors and it has much larger pixels, so FSI tech is no disadvantage. In reality the 1/1.7" BSI sensors probably about matches a 2/3" FSI CMOS sensor with similar pixel count, which has "only" 34% larger sensor area.
