he was absolutely right about slowness of RX100.

Here is comparison from one very reputable reviewer

As one can see, RX100 speed did not improve much in comparison even to the old Canon 950S from 2007.

What may this "very reputable reviewer" be who disagrees completely with DPR?

Does this mean by implication that DPR is not really reputable? Because in the RX100 review in this here site we find in the RX100's pros: " Fast operation, including focus and Raw capture"

Are you calling DPR incompetent and misleading its readers? The RX100 is a premium compact camera of 2012. If it had "not improved much in comparison even to the old Canon 950S from 2007" as you're claiming, surely they wouldn't include its operation in its pros and call its focus fast right?!

Very reputable reviewer is one of the most renown european websites

And there is no need to defend RX100, because it focuses fast but not fast enough as LX7 due to the bigger sensor.

It is ok. Let's live with it.

Canon 950S was chosen on purpose. If you did not know, this old camera has very fast focusing even by today's standards.

Therefore, I'd suggest to do some research before blackmailing people who have hands-on experience with LX7 and older Canons which confirms that RX100 is actually slower that some other compacts.

So that makes it OK to make blanket statements that say the RX100 is "sluggish"?  How about making a specific statement that the LX5 is faster than the RX100 (later proven wrong).

Autofocus wide: RX100 0.153, LX5 0.351, Canon G1X 0.695, LX7 0.241

Autofocus tele:  RX100 0.266, LX5 0.367, Canon G1X 0.681, LX7 0.228

Flash: RX100 0.372, LX5 0.562, Canon G1X 1.164, LX7 0.451

Prefocus: RX100 0.013, LX5 0.012, Canon G1X 0.094, LX7 0.010

The RX100 is pretty darn fast.
