    Xz-1

    Yes I still use it!
    It's a pocket camera for when I don't want to take the OM-D out of the car.

    Sadly it's going the way of the Canon G9, I took a shot with plenty of sky and there's a huge blob.
    So probably it won't be long before this one goes in the bin as well.

    Even when you shoot RAW? For me, that camera really shines for portraits. That's where the lens is at its best. The Sony RX100 lens has similar specs but I wonder if it has that X-factor that makes the Olympus XZ-1 lens so good?

    Yes, spotted among half a dozen normal peacocks and hens.

    The XZ-1 lens is performing great, but with dust blobs appearing on the sensor it will gradually become less and less useful, to the point where it may even show up wide open.
