  1. In theory I love this type of camera and often consider buying one. In practice I always fall back to my Oly omd em10 ii, with the 9-18 and 40-150 mm lenses I already have: it is not a much bigger kit, and I think that it produces better pictures.

  2. Mike, this is very tempting (as an upgrade to my trusty V-Lux 1 !), but how good is the image quality? I’ve been enjoying my Sony RX10 lately – crisp and colourful – but the VL1 does very well against it despite being a digital geriatric now. And I have read some disparaging comments on VL5 IQ. Can it compete with the later RX10 models? And is a non-weatherproof camera a real proposition for an explorer’s kit?
