XZ-1 - cheap rubbish with a big price
Jun 5, 2011

My new camera doesn't feature any kind of sealing to the sensor - which has dust & a hair on it after two weeks use. (I cleared this by popping up the flash and blowing down it - though had to wait some time whilst the inside of the lens demisted)
Sounds like I bought a cheap joke camera? No, the XZ-1.
A complete waste of a lot of money.

I have an Olympus trip which used to be my grandfathers.
My father also still uses his old Olympus.

After 25 yrs with Pentax & Nikon I bought the XZ-1 - only it won't be passed on to my children or grandparents. It won't even be passed on to ebay.
Simply, it's built so badly it won't last the year.

This is unacceptable. I want anyone considering buying an Olympus to know this is true 'Made in China', by people not paid enough to care, rubbish.
