Went to see The Eagles the other night, no cameras allowed. I had the XZ-10 (a recent purchase at $199.00), in my shirt pocket. I started in a non-assigned seat, and got warned about taking pictures in the first shot. Later had to move to another seat where all the remaining shots were taken. They were shot with the camera discreetly placed on my left knee, with my left hand covering the lcd and left index finger working the shutter. I'd steal a glance at the LCD from time to time to make ...

What I love about the XZ-10 is pocketability, solid feel, a very useful zoom range from wide to low tele, fast lens, good ...

I've had this camera for about 6 weeks now and I think it's great. I also have an XZ-2 to compare it alongside and I must say, if I'm taking a small camera with me I'll go for the XZ-10 every time. There's a lot of rubbish written on the reviews about it only having a tiny sensor and that the lens produces lots of CA but, y'now, it's a tiny camera aimed at people who don't expect it to compare with a 5D Mk3!  I haven't noticed any major problems with either the lens or noisy images. Granted ...
