RX100 as back up?

Given how highly rated (DPR) the new FZ200 is, is any one thinking about going back to an all in one camera? It's JPEG's weren't that highly rated but I shoot RAW anyway and would continue to do so if I did. And you wouldn't super fast primes available anymore or anything wider than 24 but I think I could live with a constant f2.8 25-600. What say you?

Try the comparison tool in this review and compare to ancient (E-PL1, G1) or latest (E-M5) mFT Cameras, and you can see even at base ISO, why I don't consider this an alternative.

However, if the Sony RX100 didn't have this flimsy pop up flash (see reviews on amazon.de), I would at least try one. But if you look at the comparison tool again: the RX100 seems to much less sharp than any other comparable camera, in spite of everyone praising it's IQ. Either the tool gives a wrong impression or people praise the cam they paid dearly, as is the case quite often.
