Olympus compacts

To add to the growing list of cameras for you to think about:

Have you considered the Olympus compacts? Either the XZ-1, XZ-2 or brand new and very small XZ-10 could be interesting, depending what your wish for price and size is.

They have very fast lenses on a compact, 2.5 on the tele end while RX100 goes down to 4.9. The sensor isn't as big as the Sony's but the lenses make up for it I think.

If you're already familiar with the Olympus menu structure you will also get used to the Olympus compacts faster than another brand I think.
