I own a XZ-1 currently, and thinking of upgrading to E-PL5, for the faster AF speed and also better image quality, I shoot my kids mainly (gosh, this doesn't sounds right). As I have never had ILC before, I am thinking of sticking with the Kit Lens for a while. I do know that eventually I will need to get a Portrait Lens. My question is, is the Kit Lens comparable to XZ-1 in terms of Bokeh? The XZ-1 has a 1/1.6 size sensor, and 6-24mm 1.8-2.5 lens. And I found that the best Bokeh can be...

I own a Olympus XZ-1 for around 2-3 years but haven't used it for anything besides travel photography. Recently I tried to use it to capture some moments of my 15 months old toddler. I found it very hard to get my son in focus. I was told by my friend that focus is a lot more technique rather than equipment, but at the same time, from what I have read online here, quite a few people are commenting that the "AF Tracking" feature on the XZ-1 is "pretty useless", hence I wasn't sure whether I...

Hello, I was thinking on some pocket camera to replace my old Olympus XZ-1 (normally I use Sony Alpha 580 with tons of lenses, so my bag is very heavy), like RX100 or Fuji XQ1. In the local shop I tested HX50 for a while and started to consider it. After reading positive review I think to change the decision. HX50 is comfortable in my hand. It has fast zooming lens (zooming in range of RX100 is much faster in HX50) and some other advantages. And is much cheaper. I was surprise about one...

Hi, I would like to ask about your experience with the MagFilter adapter/polarizer on the camera. What type and size do you use? Does it fit to the lens well? It causes some problems such as vignetting, etc..? I am thinking in particular about buying the smaller MagFilter adapter for 49 mm filters. I also know about the lens tube adapters but I do not like them because they are too large. Thank you very much for your help! Lukas

Love the XZ-1 I just picked up, astonishing results so far. But in low light and on a tripod, I have set bracketing to 0, -1.7ev, +1.7ev and it will not give me longer than 1/2 second exposure. Am I missing something?

Hi, ive never had an olympus camera and like to know if a new XZ1 is still worth buying at approx $230 USD. Most of my shooting will be on bright sunlight days (mostly landscape and street shootings) so CCD is fine with me also Id like to know if its AF speeds are fast enough.Thanks in advancedLeonardo

Hello, I'm a new owner of an Olympus E-M10 (BTW my first M4/3), and I'm wondering if there is a defect with the IBIS. When the camera if powered off, I can feel spomething moving inside during transport. Without the lens, I can clearly see the sensor moving when I slighty bump the camera. So I'm wondering if the sensor + IBIS is supposed to be locked after poweroff, or could it be normal to have this sensor moving inside ?  I had other cameras with stabilization (like XZ1), and clearly not...

Dear all I want to buy a good camera under $200. I have zeroed down to canon ixus 265 and Olympus xz-1. I am more inclined towards canon because of high zoom, light weight, cmos sensor, optical image stabilization, newer model, and compact size. However larger sensor size (only model which gives me sensor size larger than 1/2.3" in this price range), much more manual tweaking options are still holding me towards  Olympus model. My choice is greatly dependent on the image quality, what is the...
