RX0 a TG-5 killer? or not?

first about myself, I am always a sucker for tough camera. Since 2007 Olympus 790SW (my first digial camera is 2006 Casio Z100 so yes I use tough cam from the start)

I always use a tough cam with a serious camera

right now is TG-5 with A6500 and 10-18mm lens. They complement each other perfectly because A6500 has no zoom

And from day 1 like everyone else I complain about the small sensor of tough cam

so now finally a large sensor (if one can called 1 inch sensor a large sensor) tough cam arrive

But and this is a big list of but

1 no 4k

2 no IS

3 no zoom

4 F4 2 stop slower than TG-5 F2 (doubtful if it will be better in low light compare with TG-5)

It will have better IQ than TG-5 in good light at ISO 100, I think

Is it just a GoPro sports cam? Is it worth it as a tough camera (I don't need GoPro , I shoot few video)

this 100 gram light as feather cute tough cam is almost too hard to resist to me

even TG-5 250 gram is much heavier, for now my decision is I will buy if RX0 is successful enough to get a second generation

What do u guys think? Thanks
