I'm afraid it seems to be the case, according to the Olympus website. Scroll down the page on
http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/product.asp?product=1530&page=specs
and you'll find under Exposure Control: AE lock -- Non available

For my taste, it's not a bit of a bummer, it's a great big one. How could a company as experienced as Olympus make such a grevious mistake.

I agree, and I don't know. It is supposed to be an enthusiast camera, right? My old C770 superzoom had one, so I don't know what's going on with the XZ1.

I wonder if the red button could be reconfigured, in some future firmware rev?

Apparently the red button can't be configured for it right now. But yes, hopefully they get it right with a firmware revision.

Cheers,

Wayne
