    So I took the Stylus 1 to an Iris Festival and had a blast shooting with it. LOVE LOVE LOVE having a viewfinder again. I mean I know that is not a new feature but one that I have been living without for a while with my Micro 4/3 set up. I didn't even use Macro on any of these shots. Iris are fairly large blooms so I treated them like a portrait and stood back and zoomed in. Anyway... a few shots from the show...

    Lovely set of photos. And I agree about the viewfinder. My favorite m4/3 style was the Pens and I generally had one of the EVFs - but usually only carried it around if I was using manual lenses. But after upgrading from the XZ-2 to the Stylus 1 I realized how much I missed having the availability of the EVF around all the time (and ended up selling my EP5/VF4 combo and getting the EM10).

    @swandy... I just upgraded from a Canon G12 to a XZ-2 and I'm extremely happy with it and much better IQ I am getting from it. Since you owned the XZ-2 and now the Stylus 1, (1) can you tell me if the 1 has the exact same IQ as the ZX-2 or better or worse? I would like to have the longer reach, EVF, the 1 has, but IMHO the 1 does not have better or even the same IQ of the XZ-2. My main concern is trading my XZ-2 for the 1 and getting lesser IQ/sharpness. Can you (or anyone else) comment on the IQ of the Stylus 1 vs the XZ-2?
