If you are going to buy a compact camera which makes nice pictures - are there better alteratives than XZ-1 (if you do not need longer zoom)?

When I read the 2011 roundup of raw shooting enthusiast cameras at dpreview - I was amazed that it was not given as winner in any category?

But the only negative was that its lense can sometimes make flares? Do these flares appear so often really?

And also I will be shooting only in JPEG - I've read somewhere that the JPEG quality of XZ-1 is not very good. is it true?

Lumix LX5 is better. Samsung EX1 is also arguably better... and the newer Fuji X10 will trump it in almost every way.

I love to collect cameras... and in this category. I skipped the XZ-1. It's a very good camera, don't get me wrong. But in this category the ones I listed above is better.
