Olympus XZ-1 Review

The Olympus XZ-1 arrived quite late to the advanced fixed lens compact party. We've reviewed Canon's G12, Nikon's P7000, and Panasonic's LX5, which left us ultimately baffled when it came to the top model. For us, it was between the LX5 and the G12, until the Olympus XZ-1 came along with its bright as ever f/1.8 lens. There's something sinfully delightful about an ultra open ZUIKO at our disposal. The Olympus XZ-1 has the brightest aperture in its class, which enabled us to shoot at lower ISO settings in a variety of environments. Even neighboring compacts like the lowlight-slaying f/2.0 Canon PowerShot S95 felt the heat from the Olympus XZ-1. The best part about the Olympus XZ-1 was the fact that its image quality backed its hardware, and the camera proved itself a well-equipped tool that excelled when it came to manual controls. Consider the Olympus XZ-1 the Mini Me of the PEN family.
