    Confusion reigns.
    HI David
    I was in just the same position.

    I think you have to play - Like you, I wasn't worried about 24v28 (there's better things to use for wide). On the other hand the relatively fast 112vslower 90 was quite attractive. The cameras nice to use. On the other hand the outside controls on the LX5 are pretty cool.

    Touch decision - not sure if I made the right one

    Lili, there´s really a lot of noise in this picture for iso 320. Did you do anything in post to generate this?

    Ustein, yes, I never go over ISO 320, actually given the lens speed ISO 200 is pretty much all I need.

    I raised the exposure in post by 2.14 stops, so the shadow noise is exaggerated.

    Thanks Lili, others should know what I told you, that your ORF files produced images which showed excellent detail and tonality, with none of the problems I'd encountered with jpegs earlier.

    I'll be placing an order for a new XZ-1 soon.

    What I don't like about the LX3 is the review screen shows nothing like the actual image when downloaded. Is the Oly better?

    Re: Olympus XZ-1 Samples

    Well
    My Olympus will mainly be used for a horse camera - apart from a rather unfortunate and accidental video, it worked well on it's first outing today.

    Here are a few samples - all shot RAW and processed in photoshop

    The XZ-1 the right one for courses on horses. Just as the saying goes: " courses for hourses".

    When I ordered my XZ-1 nobody told me that I also need a horse :-). B&H should clearly list this on their camera accessory list.

    Re: Olympus XZ-1 Samples

    Retow - Uwe
    In the UK the Xz-1 comes with a free horse, together with riding lessons

    Actually, photography from a horse is a bit of a challenge, damned things won't stand still, and there's not much scope for a tripod! You can usually only use one hand as well (at least, I can only use one hand ) On the other hand, 8ft up is a good place to be.

    I've tried several different cameras - I've been told in no uncertain terms that anything bigger isn't okay, and the Olympus does work pretty well, using Aperture priority and keeping the shutter speed up.

    I used to think in a similar manner until I started shooting motorsports. Then suddenly one day, my brain told my hand: "Hey guys, that's what shutter priority is for." Although the more predictable results can seem a bit more boring sometimes, I do get more keepers

    Of course - you're quite right, I'll try it (not that my horse riding quite amounts to motorsports

    Uwe,
    Not your fault, Jono could perhaps have been specific - this is a huge new segment starting with 'What kind of Horse best fits the XZ-1?'

    Note to Jono from Arfur Dailey :

    I see a huge new market here my son, needing at the very least a How To Book. The vast Kelby Empire are also bound to be in touch, they're all over any new trend. Webcasts, Lecture Tours, Presentations...(is your Passport up to date?)
    Then there's Luigi - he'll probably want your input on a nice new half case, in matching Saddle Leathers. You might also think about a booth at the Horse of the Year Show. Think you should clear your diary sharpish......

    Re: Olympus XZ-1 Samples

    sooo-any more experiences with the XZ-1?

    Still anybody here rating it the compact with "best" IQ?

    I am close to getting one. I need a small camera where I am not limited to 35mm FOV.

    Well Tom,

    since I have the XZ-1 I have almost never used any of my other cameras again. Or at least I can say that the XZ-1 makes the most fun. And fun would not exist for me without exceptional IQ!

    So make your own conclusion

    Re: Olympus XZ-1 Samples

    I never use something like "best IQ" because this depends on too many things. But if it comes to IQ, size, price and usability (for us the EVF ranks high) this camera is hard to beat.

    Re: Olympus XZ-1 Samples

    I'm with Uwe - 'best IQ' is something to reserver for an IQ180 (not that I have one).

    But as everything is some kind of a compromise (including an IQ180), the little Olympus seems to be a very good kind of a compromise.

    Here are a couple of shots from this morning:

    Re: Olympus XZ-1 Samples

    Here is my choice of cameras

    1. iPhone 4, but then of course I am missing a real camera (not with Hipstamatic though)
    2. XZ-1 no regrets
    3. GH2 it is getting a bit better but also bigger (no action)
    4. 60D bigger again, but nice for action and the 100mm Macro is my favorite. Also optical viewfinders rock.

    It'll never replace your S2

    But it's fun, and produces good results.
    The Viewfinder is worth having.

    Hi Jono,
    I have the viewfinder from a EP2 which I still own.
    However we had the discussion before and I dont know if I want to make the camera XZ1 bigger with an external finder.
    I have mainly used my x1 as small/portable camera but lately I am not getting along that good anymore with 35mm FOV as single standard focal length.

    Thats why XZ1 is one option. The other one would be one of the smaller m4/3 cameras and the Oly 24-42mm lens. Even though this might be allready on the big side for my purpose.
    Third option could be the Ricoh GXR. But then its also bigger, specially when you want to carry 2 lens modules. (However I believe I could often carry just 50mm FOV)

    My fear is that I have had so many "digicamsn" with small sensor, allways just used them for couple of months.

    Do you guys remember the Olympus twin camera?
    Thats what I want: a camera with a x1-Leica sensor and lens quality, but with a duo-focal-lengths-lens: 28mm and 50mm FOV. And then an external optical viewfinder with just these 2 frames. Thats it

    I might give the XZ1 a try. Colors seem more natural than what I see from Canon small sensors.

    xz-1 questions

    I just got the xz-1 and wondered if you guys can help me with some things:
    -which f-stop would you see as sweet spot? and which f-stops are ok?
    -same for focal lengths - anything I should be carefull?
    I am going vacation soon and running out of time/cant do much testing.
    Any special setings I should choose?

    Thanks a lot for giving me some starting help. Tom

    I use it mostly at f/4. Smaller apertures will be diffraction limited I think. But I also don't shy away full open.

    HI Tom
    Congratulations!

    I'm with Uwe here: f4 or wider - actually, it's fab using it in aperture priority mode, as you can then just use the front dial for changing the aperture. It's a fine lens, I'm sure you'll have fun with it.

    all the best

    Same here, I use all cameras on aperture priority. Just check the shutter speed so that I don't get motion blur.

    THe built-in ND filter is also very helpful.

    Well, at least it isn't boring! Right now it's drab, grey and windy. Half an hour ago the sun was shining, and ten minutes before that it was absolutely pouring with rain!

    Re: Olympus XZ-1 Samples

    thanks Jono and Uwe. Will remember f4.
    I use apart. prior. 90% with all my cameras.
    I tried it with the vf2 which seems to work very well...only downside is that one needs a pretty big bag. My bag which takes the x1 with gri would not take the xz-1 with vf.
    Overall the xz-1 seems to handle really nice for my taste. I like the front wheel control, and I also lile that there are not too many buttons which can be customized.
    I just need some simplicity to feel at home.
    Hope to post some images soon.
    Tom

    Re: Olympus XZ-1 Samples

    I guess I need to add a couple of samples

    I only had a few minutes to go outside. Shot RAW imported to C1 no adjustments saved as jpeg. The files were lovely.

    Congratulations Terry - isn't it fun - we're off riding this afternoon, so hopefully I'll get some more shots.

    Mostly the weather was drab, and the horseflies was horrid, but that Sam (the horse) certainly does like cheese and onion crisps, and there really is nothing quite as delicious as a pint of Adnams after a couple of hours riding:

    That seems very civilized with real glassware. Did you bring your own or are you outdoors by a country pub?

    A wonderful advert for Country Life, we urbanites are envious.

    HI Terry
    Country Pub - in Mellis, so yes, real glassware. We were going out again today, but thunder is forecast, so it's mowing the lawn instead.
    Les - sorry to upset you urbanites, the only consolation I can give you is that it's a 40 minute drive to the nearest decent restaurant!

    all the best
