I am looking for opinions on the best image quality for straight out of the camera JPEGs in a shirt pocket-size camera. To be clear, I like the the D-Lux 5, XZ-1, X10 but all of these are too big for the shirt pocket. RAW capability not important here.
As we know, most of these cameras make a smeary mess of photos above base ISO, so I am looking for good quality up through ISO 800 and a reasonably fast lens. Zoom range more than 4X or 5X is not required.
In summary - small camera, best JPEG IQ including ISO 800. Fire away!
