I'm enjoying my new RX100. I just made some test shots between it and my "serious" camera, an EOS 7D. Also I added my previous compact into the mix, an Canon IXUS 870 IS. Suffice to say that the RX100 comes out looking good. Comparison at ISO1600 : RX100, 7D and IXUS870 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

ISO 100 The RX100 and 7D shots were made from RAWs, processed with DxO Optics Pro. No NR or sharpening applied (which is maybe why they seem a little soft). Interesting that the 7d does not control noise as well as the RX100, especially chroma noise Cheers!
