It's finally finished - our full and complete Olympus Stylus 1 review is ready and waiting for you. In it you'll find the final installment of our Shooter's Report where we'll explore more features and delve into testing the Stylus 1's capable lens against a competing bridge camera as well as a Micro Four Thirds option in the same price range and a much more expensive (and heavy) piece of Olympus Four Thirds glass just for fun.

We'll also take a close look at the Stylus 1's image quality, specifically as compared to the Panasonic FZ200 with its smaller sensor, the Sony RX10 with its larger sensor and also the Olympus E-PL5 with its much larger sensor, at a wide range of ISOs, so that you can get a good idea of where this camera fits into the grand scheme of all-around image quality. And of course, we'll tie it all together for you with our detailed Pros and Cons section and conclusion.

Thanks so much to all of you who have waited patiently for this finale. We sincerely hope you find the full review valuable and informative, and we're working hard to get this information to you more quickly in the year ahead. Thanks for being a part of our community, and please keep those comments and questions coming!

(especially the pats on the back… we're rather fond of those)
