Olympus announces Stylus XZ-10

Well no surprise news from Panasonic and Olympus in CP+. Sorry folk, no new PEN camera but Olympus do announces something anyway. Beside the new lens, 70-300mm for mft, here we have Olympus XZ-2 little brother, Stylus XZ-10.

Olympus Stylus XZ-10 Key Specification :

  • 12.0 megapixels
  • 1/2.3" (6.17 x 4.55 mm) BSI-CMOS Sensor
  • ISO 100 - 6400
  • 26 – 130 mm F1.8 - F2.7
  • 35 Number of focus points
  • 3" fixed LCD screen
  • 1920 x 1080 (30 fps) video recording
  • Lithium-Ion Li-50B rechargeable battery

It will be available from late March 2013 for just £349.99 (converted RM1465.17), in black, brown or white.

My Opinion : No thanks. I will rather add abit more to get the bigger brother, Stylus XZ-2. I have no idea why Olympus announces this with such expensive price tag. If it was marked around RM1,200-RM990 probably it works.
