A camera does not need to have anything in common with another camera to be an upgrade. I am defining upgrade to mean any product that is superior to another.

It’s superior.

Not having used either camera all things said the RX1Rii seems superior to me.

I think what's amazing is the sheer bulk of the ZX1. The body is larger than the A7Riv, yet it has hardly any physical controls. An A7Riv with a suitable prime lens would be superior in just about every way to the ZX1, and well as smaller and much cheaper. For example, one could use the excellent FE 24mm f/1.4 G Master lens, or dozens of other prime and zoom lenses. Indeed, for the price of the ZX1, you could probably buy the A7Riv and a couple of very good prime lenses. That would be a far superior solution.
