Re: XZ-1 vs. S95: help me decide

Will add my quick observation for you. Bought, used and returned the S95 then bought the XZ-1. Of course there are far more technical arguments that can be made for each camera, but both are capable of producing excellent results and both are easy to use. If size (i.e. pocket-ability) and usable video are paramount needs for you, I would go for the S95. For me, the ability to use the VF-2 with the XZ-1 (which has not been removed from the camera since I started using it), trumps the size and video issues. The video on the XZ-1 is fair to poor and I am surprised that there has not been a firmware fix for it from Olympus, out of shame if nothing else.
Good luck, harry.
