XZ-10 a game changer?
1

XZ-10 is really big news if you are into bokeh or tele shooting. Basically, you can get the *very same* bokeh that you get from a kit-zoom on any m4/3 camera, and even better bokeh since the tele end is longer than most kit zooms. Let's run some numbers using the DoF calculator tool on the following lenses

XZ-10:  4.7-23mm (26-130mm equivalent) f/1.8-2.7

m43 Kit lens A: 14-42mm (28-84mm equivalent) f/3.5-5.6

m43 kit lens B: 12-50 (24mm-100mm equivalent) f/3.5-6.3

Comparison. Subject distance at 10 feet. Note: Smaller DoF numbers mean more blurred backgrounds and creamier bokeh.

Wide:

XZ-10 (4.7mm,  f/1.8, 10 feet). DoF = Infinite

Kit lens A and B (14mm, 28mm eq, f/3.5). DoF = 50 ft (practically infinite)

Tele:

XZ-10      (14.85mm, 84mm eq, f/2.2). DoF = 3.14 ft

Kit lens A and B (42mm, 84mm eq, f/5.6). DoF = 2.95 ft

Kit lens B (50mm, 100mm eq, f/6.3). DoF = 2.46 ft

XZ-10      (17.8mm, 100mm eq, f/2.5). DoF = 2.56 ft

XZ-10      (23mm, 130mm eq, f/2.7). DoF = 1.55 ft
