    really? i dunno if is i failed in photography or what but i think the performance of ep-1 when taking pictures indoor is not very good leh. and even when you haven take the picture yet, just look at the lcd screen, there are already LINES seen.

    Well, it's worth the $value$ for/and IQ of this cam,XZ-1 , indeed I'd say... (may refer to "Abstracts and Still-Life" section and titled "My Figurines and Collectibles", where I've just posted...)

    Well-worth-buying...

    is it my office monitor or the pics looks a little underexposed.

    i would love to buy this but i have lx3, lx5 already.

    and other than the f1.8 lens, what other major advantage does this have over lx5 if i may ask in this thread?

    it might be your office monitor, to me it looks fine on my monitor

    is your LX5 holding you back in any way? does the LX5 have wacky art modes? those are kinda fun to use

    hmm...let me.....if budget is not an issue, perhaps keep both your LX3 and LX5.

    Or, how about selling off either one of the 2-LX, then go get your XZ-1

    Btw, the Built-in flash to command Wireless flash as well as there's this New attachment - Macro-twin-LED-lights

    Well, just my point of viewS, hope it does helps somehow...

    faster lens over whole zoom range (esp at tele end), built-in 3-stop ND filter, art filters.

    video is in Motion Jpeg, much easier to edit than LX5's AVCHD video format.
