I believe the FZ1000 and the RX100m1 use the same sensor so IQ will be the same.

So the very different glass in front of the sensors doesn't impact one way or the other on image quality?

The sensor also only determines the raw image quality, and many users of compact cameras are not interested in preempting the camera's own JPEG processing (and there are often image modes where this is not possible).  In addition, image quality also depends on things like the quality of autofocus and exposure metering, things that depend on neither glass nor sensor.  And on handling, making sure that the controls and displays make the desired quality readily accessible to the photographer.
