I'm very interested in the MX-1 and like what I see so far, but I haven't seen any direct photo comparisons with other premium compact camera.

Is any owner of this camera in a position to upload some comparison shots of the MX-1 and one of the current crop of premium compacts - Canon G15, Panasonic LX7, Olympus XZ-2 etc? Or even the previous generation (G12, LX5, XZ1).

I'm particularly interested in high ISO (e.g. 1600) - full resolution (or 100% crops).

I'm probably being optimistic in asking this as I expect you're all out enjoying what looks like a great new camera!

Don't have the MX-1 yet, but an extremely interested in this camera as the shots I have seen look extremely sharp, with good detail.  The only thing keeping my from buying the MX-1 right now is the X20, which I'm expecting in a couple of weeks.

Anyway, some samples are starting to appear on Flickr, and there are now some full size images.  Even though they are JPEGs, they look really good.

The image of the red chinese lantern show that they lens is fantastic.  The sensor is likely the same as 12 mp Sony sensor that is in the Olympus XZ-2 and Nikon P7700, as colors look similar.

As far as RAWs, there are some full-sized RAWs online, but I haven't found a converter that works with them as of yet, but haven't tried SilkyPix, which Pentax usually bundles with their cameras, if I'm remembering correctly.

Nicer images here, same great IQ (See link below).

Finally, PhotographyBlog has some full-size JPEGs.  Quality looks great, but cloudy weather, dull photos. See what you think (See link below).

I really want this camera, but two high end compacts, plus a Nikon V1 might be overkill.
