I sold it and got the more handsome Pentax MX-1. (same lens and sensor, stronger body, but thicker and lesser ART modes)

Olympus XZ-1 has the best combo of sensor size & optic quality for a period.

So good that, in XZ-2 model olympus just changed type of the sensor from CCD to CMOS. And also a uniqe thing happened, they sold cmos&optic blend to pentax and casio.

Pentacx MX-1

Casio EX-10

Exact copies of Olympuz XZ-2
