I too took advantage of the recent low price. I find the XZ-1 to be a fine P&S camera. If it was my only camera, I would happy. It's not my only camera. It's too big to carry around all the time. It's something I have to carry in a bag or jacket pocket. For it's size, I have better cameras. I understand why the NR is on all the time. There is always noise even at the base ISO. I've been on the verge of sending it back for a week. I think I finally have decided to. I kind of want to keep it. Yet it puts me $200 further away from a RX100 which is the camera I think I could really use. If I kept the XZ-1, I'd think it would spend most of it's time in the closet.
