The X70 vs the RX100 III/IV/V for interior shooting

Hi,

I am mainly a m43 user who has also been using the RX100/3 during the last year as a pocket-able small solution. Although the RX100/3 is quite good for small travel camera, the camera struggles to capture moving subjects in low/interior light (e.g. my nephews inside a room with low/interior light). ISO above 1600 doesn't look good and ISO 6400 even with DXO is difficult to make it look good. From my experience with Fuji XE1 and X-A10 I know that ISO 6400 JPEG looks quite good and certainly better than my RX100 and even my m43 setup.

I wonder if an X70 would be a considerably better solution for these family events. Although it does have a much larger sensor, I am bit concerned in the slower lens (2.8 vs 1.8) and the Face detect AF. I also have a X-A10 and wonder if the X70's AF is similar or worse than the X-A10 and the RX100/3.

Re the newer XF10, I don't like that it misses a tilt screen and would only consider it in a super price opportunity (hard to find).

Any comments / advice?
