...the A7 good colorful focus peak felt very nice but I noticed with it too that it rendered subjects in focus while they were blur. Don't know why I haven't read about that anywhere else, as it was terrible to spot that subject 2m front of me was in focus but so was the store background where there were good contrasted shelfs 20-30m from me and clearly out of focus even on display.

In the Sony RX100M2 there are some menu options which control how much strongly the focus peaking is displayed that might affect what you saw.  But my experience with focus peaking is that it can't be trusted on it's own - you have to use it in conjunction with magnified focus assist to be sure of what's really going to be in focus.  See this short YouTube video I put together to show how this works.
