Please post some useful real world RAW samples. In the last few reviews these RAW samples are useless, same scene indoors.

ther are some errors: the xz-10 has no AF at all, no normal macro mode and no auto panorama in camera.

Fully agree with this review.
Always had Canon before (SX-240 last), forgot them in 48h since I bought the ZX-10.
This one is much better almost everywhere, besides the length of zoom of course.
1.8 is so much interesting by far!
Controls much more ergonomic too.
All good, like a mini DSLR, always in my pocket since.

Nice review.
And what about a comparison between the XZ-10 and the XZ-1 models?

Wow! I’ve never seen such low-noise ISO 100 pictures from a 1/2.3 sensor. These pictures look better than from some 1/1.7 sensor cameras. Image quality should have been 5 stars in this review.

Bought this camera 2 months ago. Excellent pictures and built quality. Better than all my compact cameras. Love this camera.

Recently bought this camera and massively annoyed to find it has NO MANUAL FOCUS. Reviewer is incorrect in that part. Call me stupid but I trusted this review.

It doesn’t say anywhere in the review that MF is supported.  Only that you can manually select AF points, like most P&S cameras.

I guess “Backlight HDR On” & “Backlight HDR Off” pictures are mixed here: http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/olympus_xz10_review/image_quality/

i use this camera for 4 months
greatly enjoy this camera i have it for four months
- always with me in my pocket
i love the dramatic picture mode for taking pictures of clouds and the super macro mode,
it has a problem with white balance indoors but that can easily be fixed by moving to P and adjusting the white balance
All in all a great camera
i dont think everyone needs a 1 inch sensor camera especially one that can not give you macro of 1 cm but only 5

Does anyone know where I can find help regarding the connection to the PC?  The camera isn’t recognized and I’ve tried a new battery and USB cable.
