Panny TZ 7 vs Oly XZ-1

And here also the post, to which nobody has an answer to my questions in the Oly-Forum:


I use since a couple of years now, the Panny as my backup and also with the underwater-housing to my 7d with lots of glass.

Up to now, I was always satisfied, what this little thing could do, if I had not taken the bulky 7d with my.

So, I know about the facts of the xz-(bigger sensor and f 1.8 - 2.5) but waht about real world comparisons?
Has anybody both cameras and can compare them?

On the xz-1 there is just one third of zoom to the panny. What about the crop possibilities with the olympus. Is there a lot of potentiell?

And what about the shallow dof of the olympus. Can't I achieve not the same with the panny by goiing away and zooming in a lo?
Kind regards.

P.S.: What about video comparisons (focusing, etc.). I like the one of the tz7, especially underwater. I use the mjpeg/quicktime format, which I like more than avchd
