    Olympus Olympus XZ-2

    I think so, in a camera where every parameter is digitally controlled they can't put anything but a smooth analog-like digital control.

    Would You Buy This Camera?

    May be I would buy one as a second compact camera, because it's very attractive, but my first compact camera would be a zoom camera. Having this one and a RX100, one in each pocket would be very nice. However, for a combined use a slightly tele prime lens would better suit my needs, given that...

    Olympus XZ-1 shoots Harry's Caf

    Thanks Sue, wonderful shot! After seeing this, I would buy a XZ1 if I hadn't one yet ;)

    Wishlist camera May 2012

    An Oly EPL3 with the electronic viewfinder that I could use on my XZ1 too is on top of my wishlist. The optics would be a 17 and a 45.

    Olympus ND filter on XZ-1

    Long exposures in bright light too EG falls shots with water motion effect, of course you need a tripod

    Micro 4/3 Olympus TG-1 iHS - Serious Compact? For some, yes.

    It's very serious as long as you really need a rugged camera! I've an old Pentax W80 and I'm happy with it but this new Oly seems to be a further step ahead! I like the possibility to mount a fisheye too. They are very useful when shooting or filming sport action.

    50mm on cropped sensor for street?

    It's good for street with a reflex as far as street with a reflex is a good option ;) Actually, I tend to stay a step back when I use a reflex, so a 50 mm on APS-C is perfect for me.

    Pentax K-5 vs XZ-1

    I can't see much difference here. I too have an older Pentax DSLR and an XZ-1. With good light I can't see much difference On my monitor between the pictures I took with these cameras. Of course, even in easy condition, XZ-1 is not comparable to K5 with a good fixed lens when speaking about...

    What's Your Favourite Camera (and lens combo optional) of all time?

    I loved my first camera Pentax MX with SMC M 50 F/1.7, but I was young and confused and always looking for new gear. My second love was after many years and several cameras my first serious digital compact, an Olympus C-60Z. Now I love my Pentax K100D with FA 50 F/1.4 and should say this is my...

    Fuji X10 or Oly XZ1?

    I think the XZ1 is nice and compact. Buy it if you want a very usable P&S with wonderful IQ. But I would recommend a X10 if you are going to use the viewfinder on a regular base. Unless you already own an Olympus M43 or you are going to buy one soon., in that case go for the Xz1 and share the...

    Do you still have a DSLR?

    I still have my Pentax k100D with kit zooms, 50 f/1.4 and a Sigma 28-105. I don't use it much at the moment, may be I'll bring it with me in the next photography challenging travel, may be I won't and I'll bring only my Xz-1. I really don't know what to do. I feel very fine with my Olympus XZ-1...

    Review or User Experience?

    I read reviews to learn what a camera does and what doesn't, how interface is and other mere facts. After that I read users reviews, then I read forums. I think forums are a very good source of information. I always read manuals before buying. Then, I go and see. Finally, I look at real world...

    Sensor Size Does Matter

    I think that small sensor "serious" cameras can be as good as any other "serious" camera if you understand their limits. I can have somethimg compact enough to, let's say, fit in my pocket, but it's either a small sensore camera, a 4/3 or APS-C camera with a pancake or with a tiny slow zoom. In...
