Unfortunately, I haven't used the XZ-2 or LX-7 or any similar camera to help you with your quest for a comparison. My RX100 is simply brilliant; not a match for a DSLR, but an amazing pocket camera. I'm happy sticking to wide angle settings in low light. It's always nice to do low light candids, but that's best done with my DSLR with a fast short tele for shallow DOF anyway.

As mentioned, I have, and the short version is that although the RX100 is not perfect it is clearly better on nearly every point and the whole camera is, in your words, "simply brilliant."
