Both are about the same price, not sure which one to get, i know that rx100 is pockable, is the g5 with 14-42mm lens produce worst low light than rx100? cause in the image resource page it show g5 has better image not sure whether it was using kit lens.

Yes, G5 with 14-42/3.5-5.6 is worse in low light than RX100. Especially on wide end of the zoom, at long end the difference is practically non-existing. But then again the 14-42 goes only to 84mm eq, not 100mm as RX100.

G5 is ILC, it is meant for multiple lenses. If you only plan to use it with 14-42, don't bother.
