Default Digital Photography Review Tests the Olympus XZ-1

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/OlympusXZ1/' target='_blank'>http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/OlympusXZ1/</a><br /><br /></div><p><p><em>"Back in 2001, when it was possible to charge $999 for a compact camera, Olympus produced the C-3040Z, C-4040Z and C5050Z which featured some of the brightest zooms to ever appear on such cameras. Sadly, as the years have gone on and prices have dropped, Olympus moved away from this part of the market and it's been a long time since we looked to it for class-leading compacts."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1296574490.usr15670.jpg" /></p></p><p>DPReview has their review of the XZ-1 up (I keep on typing ZX-1 for some reason), and they have reminded me of the old f/1.8 series of cameras that Olympus did. Those were some nice cameras for their time, but here is their successor, the XZ-1. Going by the naming convention, I'm also wondering if they are trying to draw a connection to their <a href="http://www.cameraquest.com/xa4.htm" target="_blank">XA cameras</a>? The review is favourable, and if I still use small sensor cameras, this could well be my top pick. Minor nit: The Bluetooth module that was announced with the E-PL2 will not work here; the connector apparently is different.</p>
