Camera Bargain Watch: Insanely low price on Olympus XZ-1


posted Friday, November 9, 2012 at 1:48 PM EDT


One of our favorite premium pocket cameras, Olympus XZ-1 (black version only), is selling at Amazon for the insanely low price of $200, down $300 from its original retail price of $500.

If you've ever considered a Canon S100 or Panasonic LX5 -- or if you're looking at the latest S110, LX7 or XZ-2 -- you might consider the Olympus XZ-1 instead. Cut from the same cloth as the LX5, the Olympus XZ-1 has a higher quality lens and slightly better color management than its Panasonic cousin. The Olympus XZ-1's i.Zuiko lens also has sharper corners and an f/1.8 maximum aperture.

But rather than go into all its features, I'll refer you to our extensive Olympus XZ-1 review.
