Re: Why xz1 is still mentioned contrary to the lx5

Hi ,

Your two images show the strength and weakness of the XZ-1's CCD , and I find exactly the same results, in daylight the great lens shows excellent detail better than many kit lenses on larger cameras .

In low light though the sensor just can't cope , the detail is smudged throughout due to excessive noise reduction, more detail can be extracted from the raw files though.

folks get upset when you point out that that the camera has a  small CCD and Olympus could not do anymore with this sensor thats why nothing in this area in firmware updates and while they kept the lens the XZ-2 went to a CMOS sensor with better low light capabilities.
