From what I have seen the sony rx10II is certainly not a few stops better in low light compared to the mark1 because it has a bsi sensor, it in fact shows similar performance from what owners of both versions have shared so far.

The great majority of a wedding your camera location is greatly restricted lending itself to zooms.

sticking with something like a 17-55mm would mean having to be unacceptably close to the bride and groom during the ceremony to get the shots I want, though I do use something similar during prep and processional.

I don't get closer than around 10-15' which is good enough for head and shoulders. I agree 70-200mm is ideal for close up of the brides face while maintaining enough distance to be unobtrusive and out of the wide down the aisle / balcony shot. But here again we are only debating between which zoom to use.

To add to the discussion, I also use M4/3. I'll state my lenses and put the FF equivalent in brackets:

Establishing shots:
12mm f/2 (24mm)

Prep shots:
25 f/1.4 (50mm)
75mm (150mm) f/1.8
45mm (90mm) f/1.8
12-40mm (24-80mm) f/2.8

Ceremony and Speeches:
40-150 (80-300) f/2.8
12mm (24mm) f/2
75mm (150mm) f/1.8

First Dance:
25mm (50mm) f/1.4
12mm (24mm) f/1.4

Sometimes shoot 4K, so I can crop in to the shots.

Would love to add the 42.5mm f/1.2 soon.

Would love to shoot 4k. I'm still holding out for 4k with the same focusing as my 70D.
