Re: Decisions: Size vs Price vs IQ

No, not the XZ-1.

Like you I used a Fuji F30 for years. I replaced it with an S90 I liked very much until I lost it.

I bought an XZ-1 figuring the fast lens would make up for the worse sensor, and it didn't. The lens was super-sharp, but the pictures above ISO 200 were terrible. And it is not that pocketable, and it needs a lens cap.

If you are money constrained the LX7 is selling now for $300. The XZ-10 looks very promising presuming it has a sensor as good as the 1/2.3" Canon SX50. The RX100 truly is the gold standard in pocketable IQ. ISO 3200 makes a solid 8x10.

ISO 5000 RX100

Same light, ISO 5000 XZ-1
