Agreed, along with the LX5, I'd prefer the Olympus XZ-1 over the S95... i'm debating between those 2
Good price on this one, but just now what I'm looking for. Thumbs up nevertheless
i've had a s90 for about 8months b4 i sold it and bought s95. LX3 and 5 seem to be too big for me, plus no manual control. but it has a better wide angle. Just do you know, i'm very happy with it size, image quality, and f2.0. I dont know about xz1 enough to say anything about it.
how is the image quality of this camera compared to the S90 or S95? better? is it worth the upgrade? I currently own the S90.
I own a S90 and I couldn't resist this deal. Yes image quality will be better because the camera uses a much larger sensor. It's going to be better than S90, but not as good as SLR (but close). The benefit is it's not as large or bulky, especially is you bundle it with the pancake lens (which you need to buy separately). The kit zoom lens is a good all purpose lens but it's quite large. My plan is to either sell it or have it on the side and buy a pancake lens but those aren't cheap. The feature set alone KILLS the S90. I particularly am excited about full HD recording, adjustable audio levels (good when at concerts you can downplay audio input so it doesn't blow out the audio quality), MUCH faster autofocus and overall much better quality. You can't go wrong. My thoughts on why this price drop all of a sudden is happening is because the new G3 is coming out in June. It's a different category camera (larger, more SLR type handling) but they're probably trying to clear out GF2s...who knows maybe a GF3 is about to be announced.
