A mate has the x-100. Nice cam (swings and roundabouts there).
Side by side? The OMD plus one of 12,17,15,45 primes is easily pocketable (at least in winter) X-100 is absolutely not.
Placed side by side, for all but pixel-peepers the IQ difference pales compared to the size difference. Of course if you have a lot of loot, get both.
Otherwise just enjoy your compact travel photography ..

Well designed gear performs better for longer than well marketed gear.
