That brings to the table the big selling point of the GR as well. A small size you can take everywhere without compromising on image quality.

That is indeed the biggest selling point of the GR but I decided the 28mm focal length was too limiting for it to be useful to me. The OOC Jpegs are also average and really require lightroom to get the best out of it.

However, I would argue that if you really like 28mm as a focal length, the best image quality per inch is the pixel 3 especially for lowlight.

This whole idea of limiting yourself to one focal length is also a bit of marketing BS. I like using primes for my full frame kit but having a zoom does open you up to more options with respect to photography especially where decisive action is required.

After my experience owning/using the RX100vi, I now value the user experience (ergonomics) more as a photographer. I recently purchased an "as new" secondhand first edition Fujifilm X100 (introduced in 2010). Only 12 megapixels APS-C sensor, and a 35mm (equivalent) f2 lens, but what a joy to use, I love the thing. It ain't always down to the tech specs, or the latest and greatest to enjoy photography.

Note: I still own and use my a7rii and a7iii.
