Another strong factor you have to consider is viewfinder you'll be shooting through

with each camera. 5D iii has and optical one; with the RX-1 you are stuck with

the electronic screen on the back and even if you buy the accessory viewfinder ($$$)

it will still only be an electronic one.

The RX1 also has an optional optical VF, fwiw.

Having used both systems, I heartly recommend you stick to an optical viewfinder

if you are shooting things that move fast.

Why not consider the 6D? Just a thought...

That's my thinking as well. My concern is the OP is already leaving the DSLR behind here and there. So, the RX100 (or update) might be the most appropriate. Hmmm.
