I suspect it's just barely too large and heavy to replace my XZ-1 as a take-everywhere camera. But the longer range (nearly triple!) is awfully tempting.

I have the XZ-2 (so I am already a bit bigger and heavier than your XZ-1) but the major difference in the size is the height due to the hump for the EVF. Do wish they could have integrated it more like the Panasonic GX-7 but we will have to see.

Only "issue" for me is that a lot of concert venues let me get in with the XZ-2 because it does not look "professional". Don't know what their reaction would be to this mini-DSLR look.
