13 second on a windy, snowy night
straight out of camera, no post processing
note some branches are blurred due to 17mph wind and long exposure
It can do well in low or bleak light as well

I have both, I love my 14mm. It is has been m most used lens.
But the 15 is really a lot smaller.
My E-PL2 cannot get much smaller and lighter with it in place.
It has a built-in lens cover so no added bulk.
For grab shots on the street I cannot think of anything faster, set hyperfocal by...
As long as you keep ISO below 320 or so and shoot RAW, the XZ-1 is a superb camera, esp at the latest low prices.
Being able to carry a useful zoom range, fast lens in ones pocket is priceless.
The fact that the AF and shutter are virtually noiseless even more so.

Great if ALL you do is shot business cards. Otherwise not the best test, bigger sensor means less room for macro. Point blank range with powerful flash on white business card, test tailor-made for tiny sensor and LED flash. Good comparison would be a wide range of usage.
I absolutely adore my 12mp N8, this successor intrigues me greatly.
At risk of looking like a 'tool' I shoot quite bit with my phone, I can edit and upload directly from the device.

It runs about 60% the price of the VF2. The resolution and color are not nearly as good as the VF2 but it is still quite usable. I have both and the VF3 gets used more; by virtue of the locking mount which make it far less likely to fall off the camera and get lost. That happened once to my VF2...
I have both the E-PL1 and E-PL2.
I like both.
The 1 lives with my 17mm on it and the VF-3

I had a Dell Streak 7 that used mainly for browsing and uploading to flickr (it has a full size SD card slot)
Now I have an LG G Slate 8.9" tablet. Battery life is fantastic. Read via Kindle, browsing, shopping and visiting forums is my main use for it.
Lana, you are most welcome for any help I could provide. If I may offer a suggestion; shoot RAW and convert to jpeg using the included Olympus Viewer 2. This allows you to disable noise reduction. Noise will limit you to ISO 320 at most, depending on your tolerance for noise, however the detail...
