I moved up to a Sony A65 for occasions when I could carry something bigger. For evening strolls, photos at dinner with the family on vacations, etc, I moved up to the XZ2.

Jon404 was the person who was most expert on using the XZ1 and he posted a lot on how to get the best out of the XZ1. Helped me a lot. But he also moved on to something better, with a larger sensor, but just this instant I do not recall what.

If I remember correctly, jon404 has moved to a Pentax K01. There were some incredible discounts on this camera, but from my research I was not convinced.

I also want to upgrade, a while ago I was considering the new Ricoh GR, but it has no zoom. Still highest on my list is a E-PL5 with kit lens zoom and pancake 20mm.

Hi DigiRider,

Thank you for your post!  Yes, the Pentax K01 or the E-PL5 you mention I think would be a comfortable size for me to work with.

Out of curiosity, what was it about the K01 that was not convincing to you?  I think I too would miss not have a zoom.  I will spend some time researching both the Pentax and the E-PL5.  Thanks!
