In my 40 year experience, a small sensor with an excellent lens (Pani LX5, Oly XZ2, Sony RX100II...) will produce sharper pictures than an APS-C camera (Nex 3, or 7) with an average kit lens.

I agree that the little 1.7 sensored cameras coupled with a fast lens were an improvement over the standard P&S's but they definitely lose something compared to even cheap APSC's with kit lenses (which aren't as bad as most people seem to claim.)  The RX100 has a larger 1" sensor and does much better, but it is also more expensive than the X-A1.  The X-A1's kit lens is pretty sharp.  It would be nice if it was a little faster.
