there's big practical differences between two cameras, as owner of both of them, in terms of IQ, sony is clear winner even at iso80...G15 is great camera too but not in the same class with Rx100....enjoy your new camera...

Of course the G15 is not in the same class as the RX100. It has much more reach, the lens does not close up as much as the RX100 over this longer reach , has plenty of external controls and space to actually hold the camera. 1" is still not a large sensor so I am not sure why there is all this fuss over the RX100. It is just an interesting technical exercise in getting a moderate size sensor in a small body but as usual with Sony more pixels than are of any practical use to the average user.

Re: The G15 is portable!

I looked very closely at the RX100, and liked it a lot, but it is not built as well and is not as robust at the G15.

If I were only going to keep it for a year, I would have probably gone with the RX100.  But I like my cameras to be able to take a bit of (ab)use over several years, and while the G series has always had a rock-solid track record that way, the RX100 just did not inspire confidence as a field camera.

Your mileage may vary, but the G15 is a great, tough little camera.
