Panasonic GM1 or RX100 mark ii

Deciding between these two cameras. I want something pocket sized and silent (i.e. electronic shutter) with some zoom range

Interchangeable lenses is nice but not a decider. I am more interested in IQ.

So far I see that the GM1 has a 0.5 stop noise advantage and the RX100 has a 0.7 stop dynamic range advantage.

Obviously lens quality is key. I am a big fan fo Sony/Zeiss lenses, but also Panasonic makes some pretty good Panny/Leica lenses. However I don't think the kit lens is a Leica design.

Just wondered what you guys think and also if anyone has used both and can comment

many thanks
