I always prefer to own top of the line in whatever category, but I ask myself is the RX1 photo worth over 2K more than the RX100 photo.

Frankly, I ask myself the same question every now and then. I bought the RX1, busted it, then got the RX100 to use until the RX1 was repaired. At this point -- I clearly like the low-light benefits of the RX1, the bokeh, and shallower DOF -- but if I had the RX100 and didn't have the cash for the RX1, I think I would be pretty happy with the results most of the time!

I bought the RX1 less than a week ago after having the RX100 for several months and I feel much the same way (so far). Yes, I can see that the RX1 produces superior images, especially  in side-by-side comparisons, but the RX100 is just so good it does make me wonder if the price differential is worth it. [Of course, it's still early days for me, so I may become obsessed with the RX1, but it's not happening yet]
