Summary: This camera garnished wonderful reviews yet seems to be flying below the radar. It has been a joy to use, and to learn how to use better. The zoom would be better if it were of a higher magnification. 10.7 really is OK but not great.
Excerpt: I bought the Stylus 1 to take to concert venues where I can't get in with my "professional" DSLR. No problem! The 28-300mm zoom lens and constant f/2.8 aperture are perfect for shooting live concerts.
Excerpt: Bought this for my wife who decided she wants to take pictures rather than waiting for me to take pictures! Size and weight near OMD models, well built, nice feature set, IQ very good, good zoom range, I personally like the Oly jpegs and there is raw for those who want to tinker.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I bought the Stylus 1 to take to a recent music festival and it performed flawlessly! It handled the difficult stage lighting beautifully. The fast constant f/2.8 aperture was great for freezing high energy stage performances.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: With a touch screen to set the focus point, both a lcd screen and a eye piece to view through a 10x zoom constant at f2.8, the camera can do just about everything i want it to do. The only draw back is it has so many bells and whistles and options, it is almost too much.
Excerpt: I love my Sony RX100 except for the limited zoom, so I wanted a point and shoot with more zoom, which the Stylus 1 possesses. I was also impressed with the viewfinder and the constant fixed aperture. Decent in low light.
Excerpt: I am a 70+ year old retiree who is finding that messing around with a DSLR is getting to be problemetic due to the partial paralysis of my hands. I wanted a smaller, lighter camera with a decent zoom as a replacement when along came the Stylus 1. It fills the bill very nicely.
Excerpt: I like a lot about this camera; it has a sturdy 'feel' about it. The EVF and the nice large (touch-) screen work fine. For me it's the ideal camera to take out on a trip, shoot some nice landscapes and some details you like one a building....
