It would appear that the RAW output of the XZ-1 at least rivals that of the GF1 m4/3 with the stellar Lumix 20mm f/1.7. Can this be? Has Olympus, by virtue of the Zuiko lens quality and small camera sensor improvements, brought the XZ-1 to m4/3's door step?
Olympus XZ-1 Review: 11. Compared to (Raw): Digital Photography Review
I've been studying this image in many areas, with the RAW output from the XZ1 and the GF1, at 100 and 400 ISO, and it certainly looks like this new camera rivals m4/3. Or am I missing something?
For my own needs, I'm unconcerned with JPG performance and I'm only comparing RAW output, because I prefer to shoot only RAW and process images myself.
