XZ1 owners- opinions wanted please

I have the Samsung TL350, am thinking of upgrading to a better compact.
The Canon S100, Panasonic LX5 get most of the hype, attention.

The Samsung EX1, Olympus ZX1 also look like contenders.

I like that the Samsung has a tilt lcd screen and a swivel dial (presume works for changing aperture or shutter settings. I don't like the interface on the TL350, not user friendly.

The Olympus doesn't have the above but it smaller & looks very nice (on paper anyway)

So basically I'm wondering

1. what you think of the XZ1 (I know there's an XZ2 coming) and would you recommend it
2. why you picked this over other premium compacts
3. what you like about it
4. what you don't like about it.
5. anything else of interest.

Thanks in advance,--
