The only reason I am not pulling the trigger for the 2 is there is a claim that it is better in low light which has not been proven by a full test here on DP. I don't need the new features on the 2 for my purposes. However I like to shoot in low light and the new sensor in the 2 is supposedly better for that. If that proves not to be significant then the RX100 will be my choice as soon as I read the review here on DP.

Better high ISO performance has been demonstrated by everyone and questioned by no one - but it's maybe half a stop at best compared to the RX100.  So, if that's the only advantage of the Mk2 from your perspective, it's a pretty steep premium for half a stop or so.
