The Olympus XZ-1 is the first high-end compact point-and-shoot to be released by Olympus in almost a decade. Though not quite as tiny as Canon's S100, it’s still relatively trim. The bright 4x zoom lens (28-112mm equivalent) has a maximum aperture of f/1.8 at the wide angle and f/2.5 at telephoto, and a dedicated low-light mode automatically adjusts ISO sensitivity up to ISO 3200. The camera's high-resolution 610,000-dot, 3-inch OLED display is also a standout.
