When I go to pro-camera restricted art or fashion review, sometimes the security will ask to take a look at my camera. I snickeringly show them the “6.3 megapixels” etched into the front handgrip. They always knowingly shake their heads in satisfaction and leave me alone for the rest of the evening.

When I show my prints to the artists, they always buy them for their hard portfolios. Often, I am asked, how I was able to use a pro grade camera at the show. <snicker> I just tell them, “I’m just that good, that’s all”. <snicker>

Then they'd be blown away by what an RX100 could do, or the prints are so small that the IQ advantage of the RX100 is overkill.  Still, I wonder if they'd stop you at the door with a "professional" RX100, given that it has 20 MP, and all.  I wonder if they screen for those 41 MP cell phones, too.
