Canon used to be king of the high end compacts but the G series seems like it has run out of steam. Id personally much rather have a Fuji X10.

Was there a problem with the G15 during your sample images session ?

Outdoor photography at ISO800 to obtain an 1/50s shutter speed ?! You forgot the ND Filter ? Or was it really dark when you got the camera ?

I just don’t understand…
-> Your desk :
G15 : 1/60s ISO800
XZ2 : 1/30s ISO320
-> The facad with 6 balconies :
G15 : 1/20 ISO800
XZ2 : 1/80 ISO200

You shot by night for the G15 and in bright sunlight for the XZ2 haha ?
It is difficult to compare cameras in such different conditions…

By the way, if you had to chose between Olympus XZ2 and Canon G15, wich one would you pick ?

Thanks in advance !

I had an Oly XZ1 for about a year and then sold it. The IQ was good and the lens sharp but I found the sensor noise not good at high ISOs, the video awful, the handling a bit awkward (esp the lens cap and lack of grip), no viewfinder etc. I have just purchased the G15 at a considerably reduced sale price here in Oz and couldn’t be more delighted. It handles well, has great low light performance, bright sharp lens, good video and handling is good. As a complete package, it’s basically everything I wish the XZ1 could have been.

This is one of the finest compact Cameras I have ever used, I carry it ALL the time. Image results are stunning this is an example of what it is capable of: http://www.flickr.com/photos/antmant/8485445372/in/photostream

What gives here? These sample shots are dreary and all at high ISO compared to the RX100 II’s shots which are all at low ISO. Agree with Thomas above, there is something wrong here and as you haven’t answered the question: Did you leave the ND filter for all these. This is a really unfair comparison and will lead people to believe that you have an agenda here.
