Should I trade my m43 system for Sony RX-10

I currently have the following equipment (and the price Amazon will pay if I trade them in).

Olympus EPM2: $149

Panasonic 20mm: $213

Olympus 14-150mm: $285

Olympus Fl-14 flash: $50

Total: $697

A used Sony RX-10 is $905 on Amazon.

So, I will pay an additional $208 from my pocket if I trade it in.

Should I trade my m43 system for Sony RX-10?

Portability and excellent picture quality (but no pixel peeping) in following two scenarios is very important to me.

1. Indoor party pictures - EPM2 + Pana 20 mm + Fl14 has served me very well.

2. Concert type situations where I am far away in dimly lit situations: Flash is useless + Olympus 14-150mm is not very fast.

I am intrigued by the Sony 24-200mm F2.8 lens and a decent 1" sensor.

m43 has 225mm^2 sensor and Sony rx10 has 116 mm^2 sensor. Almost half the area.

F2.8 is four times brighter than F5.6. So, in dimly lit situations Sony should produce much better images.

Any opinions/ideas/suggestions/comments?

Thank you.
