Re: 20mm + 16-50mm or cheaper 19mm + 16-50mm

You can open different topic for that, but in sum I can assume that RX100 lens will outperform sel20f28. Even cheap Sigma 19mm outperforms it in terms of sharpness.

The sigma 30 is probably sharper than the CZ 24. That doesn't mean that the CZ 24 is junk or that the RX100 will outperform the CZ 24.

However, with RX100 you will be stuck with only one lens.

The problem with the Nex and 20mm is that you're fixed at 20mm.  Aside from that, there are a lot of advantages to the Nex.  If you must have a very compact camera with a zoom lens, then I'd get the RX100, but I'd put"lens quality" aside and buy based on how it is to be used.
