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

Thanks for your response. I understand the limitations of one lens. I already own a NEX with multiple lenses but am torn between the sel20f28 or RX100 for travelling light. NEX with 20mm is compact enough for me and I like 20 mm, but I want the best possible image quality and was wondering if the RX100 is better than the nex in direct comparison from a pure image quality standpoint.
