The article above is a bit out of date, no surprise since the high performance compact market a point of hot competition. The RX100 is up to MKiii now, for instance.
I'm admittedly a Lumix fanboy, but the new GM1 hits a lot of hot spots and is quite close in size to the Sony RX-100, has a larger sensor and is an interchangeable lens shooter without making it obvious. The kit lens is a short zoom (12-32 which is 24-64 equivalent) 30 or 24 fps, a 24 Mbps codec, no shot length limit. Probably need a couple of spare batteries for a long show though. This camera requires some study, it really only comes to life if you're willing to go to manual settings.
The replacement for the LX7 is coming and it's loudly rumored to be 1" sensor and with a f2.8-f4 short zoom. But that brings up an issue for some people - shot length. The LX7 and according to rumor the LX8 as well are limited to 30 minute shot length (the file is created in smaller chunks but span without glitches up to the limit). This limit is very very common and if continuous shooting is important it knocks out a lot of cameras that would otherwise be attractive. One reason I like no shot length limit is that it simplifies syncing in post, another is the use of a locked down unattended camera.
