The launch price has also been reduced, making the Canon S95 an even more attractive proposition as a pocketable yet very capable compact. Read our in-depth Canon PowerShot S95 review now.

But can the XZ1 take on the likes of the Panasonic LX5, Samsung EX-1 and Canon PowerShot S95?

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 is the long-awaited successor to the ahead-of-its-time LX3, a compact camera that hit the sweet spot for photographers looking for a pocketable alternative to their DSLR. Fast forward two years to 2010, and it's the turn of the new LX5 to appeal to the more experienced prosumer, with a longer 3.8x lens, improved 10 megapixel sensor, AVCHD movies and a tweaked control system all on offer.
