QX-30 or E-Mount QX1

I currently shoot A99 and A77II but occasionally use the QX10. The longer reach of the QX30 is of interest to me (10x vs. 30x). But now they have the QX1 which has an APS-C sensor and E-mount. It is only $399 body only plus whatever lens I choose. My question is what lens to choose that gives the QX1 an advantage over the QX10 and/or QX30. I have a substantial collection of A-mount lenses so I don't think I want to start on an E-mount collection.

I use the QX10 for candid street, wedding and special events and places where no DSLR can go (easily).

The QX1 shoots RAW and has a flash, shoots 4fps, APS-C sensor

The QX30 has steady shot and focuses from 5cm, shoot 10fps, Optical zoom 24-720mm
