Why is my NEX not as good as RX100 or even LX5?

Can anyone please explain? I have had many Nex's. The C3 with pancake 16mm, the Nex 7 with 16-50 compact zoom and the Nex 3N with yet another Sony 16-50 kit zoom.

None could produce much sharper images or significantly less noise than my old LX5! And this from tenfold bigger sensors and much bigger pixel count. And my wife's Sony RX100 blows them all completely out of the water! How can that be? I can't have had only duds?

Here are some examples:
