How's the RX100 series track record for dust issues and overall reliability?

I'm very tempted by the new RX100 VI and have already sold my Sony A77 (1st gen) to help fund at least some of the expense. Still, $1200 is a lot of money and I want to reduce the chance that I end up with a camera that's likely to require service down the line.

Are previous RX100 models overall reliable? Is dust in the lens/sensor a common issue? It's something that made me retire at least one compact camera in the past (Ricoh GX8) and I'd hate to go through this again.

Thanks!
