XZ-1: can someone clarify the alledged detail smearing?
Apr 30, 2011

Owning an Olly dSLR and looking for a carry-around compact, I was also eyeing the XZ-1, mainly because of its stellar bright lens and zoom range.

However, i was kinda put of by the reports about the heavy detail smearing (JPEG) because of the non-adjustable noise reduction (like this thread for example: http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1008&message=37580601 ) and highlight clipping (which i know by experience seems a typical Olly issue).

These seem to be the main weak points of the camera.

So I would love to have these flaws put in the right perspective... how serious is it, when does it occur and is there a remedy?

Thanks!
