Pentax MX-1 has a serious competitor here.

As long as it has not have a hot shue & filter thread , its not threating XZ-1 or XZ-2.... and XZ-10 has so small sensor that, it only can sceares some old keyboard phones!

Hopefully, it will be a usefull & affordable tool for beginners. XZ-1 was very capable, hoepfully this caiso will b as well.

If suddenly I would have 1100 euros from air, I would pull the trigger on gray GX-7 & 20mm combo.

I start to thinking that its better than E-P5 (besides; jelly effect stays alive on panasonics :( ) and also its 300 euros more affordable than EVF-17mm-E-P5 combo....

Long live Panasonic !

John McCormack: Are there filter threads on the lens barrel?

CLA-13, CLA-12 fits for XZ-1 / 2, it would be a bit short for this one.

In reply to:

Adrian Van: Decent image quality in these samples considering the size of the sensor. Maybe the price is justified due to the long zoom range of lens and F2.8. However, if I am going to spend $699 for a camera, I would end up going for a new Olympus m43 like EPL5 plus adding lenses and I already own m43 zooms like 14-150mm and 12-50mm with my EPL1.
Hats off to Olympus, as this will certainly appeal to many consumers in target audience with bigger than 1/2 inch sensor normally with superzooms.

This is the only part, where is hard to decide.

- When you grab Stylus 1 , you take all the lenses with you.
- Even with slow lens (75-300mm) its not fitting anywhere. You have to have it on your side, neck or in a bag. And it fills all the area, but this is not.
- 75-300mm costs like 500 $/€ ... When you pay 700 $/€ you got flash, EVF and lens (both wide and tele ) on the same body.
-ITs also wifi,

As a XZ-1 and E-PM1 owner, I just can´t decide between selling my E-PM1 or XZ-1 or just buying this one as well and keep buying only F 1.8 primes for my MFT in the future and keep going snorkeling with my XZ-1....

Olympus made something so good that It makes to decide hard again.

An amazing blend of enthusiast compact camera.

- The best EVF on the class (which has brought from most popular MFT cam)
- more than 10 times zoom with constant 2.8 apetture.
- Class leading 1/ 1,7 compact sensor (Olympus made three cam with same sensor also Pentax used the same recipy)
- A super macro and Super tele in the same body.
-Its a flat camera when the lens is closed (Many VF superzooms aren´t )
-Has a hot shue, which match for other olympus product, which are affordable.
-Wifi is avaliable.

I simply can´t find enought superlatives. Very well done olympus. Maybe I would put one complain that 28mm is not wide enought compare to 24mm, or could even be 22mm... but as long as there is panorama option, its not the end of the world.

Very well done olympus.

Hasselblad's products are expensive. But value of the brand goes cheaper by their sticker, which are posted on sony products.

Man!!! There is no techno differance, but "machine made" wood grip with sticker!!!!!! COME ONNN!

I prefer phone-going QX model over those hotshue + nonshue models... way more practical less space. Its screen will improve in your next cell phone for free ;)

Ben O Connor: Forget about its optical-image etc. issues. It is the most beautifully crafted P & S Camera in past 10 years.

Very elegant very classy. Sure there is panasonic something inside, but can you say that clearly ? NO.

And its reasonably priced. Considering Swedish made wood jacket sony NEX and RX cameras .. called hazelwood...or whatever.

Well fujifilm X series are all influenced from older Leica models ;) we all know it. So They are more like a copy cat than an original beauty.

Konstatinos is right, caes looks wonderfull.

ps: still the most beautiull looking cam was Leica X1. ITs just so elegant and minimalistic at the same time. hidden hotshue, single focal lenght.... As long as we talk how it "looks" LEica X1 would be my choice.
