Here's what it comes down to: There are much longer zooms, but nothing that comes close in a camera so small that it goes in a small camera bag clipped to your belt or drops down in a jacket pocket. It's more convenient, so you'll have this camera with you more often. And that is the most important feature of any camera. Big system cameras with a bag full of expensive lenses don't get better pictures if they're back in your trunk, or worse at home in a closet, while you're out hiking. Besides numerous Canon and Nikon cameras, I have owned a couple of Olympus EPL-1s, an XZ-2 and now the Stylus 1; I can sort my Lightroom library of 30,000+ images by camera and immediately see, that more of my favorite images are shot with this camera than any other. Two reasons I think: it consistently shoots bright sharp colorful images without too much technical finessing, and because it's so convenient, it's the camera I grab more often than any other. Google: "Stylus 1 Robert Wong," look through his amazing images shot with this camera, read his suggestions for how to get the most of it.
Another favorite use for me is macro photography, orchids to insects. I tested the Nikon Coolpix P7800 and was very disappointed in it's focus speed and it's macro capability. Low light focus was not good but the real disappointment for me was that it only does macro at full wide angle (same for the Sony RX100). And while the Coolpix macro focus kept hunting the Stylus was quick and solid. Macro for the Stylus is a 1" subject fills the frame horizontally. Another important feature for me is good close focusing at modest zooms and here the Stylus was very good (a 1.5" subject filling the frame at a better zoom/working distance). (Many will note that these are advantages of a smaller sensor.)
The Stylus feels substantial, not quite as rock solid as the amazing little Sony RX100, but much more solid than the larger super zooms I have used. It has a bit of a retro look and feel that I enjoy, more angular, the viewfinder protruding toward the back. The EVF is wonderful for such a small camera. Focus / shooting speed are very good, outdoor color natural for my few shots so far, lots of control and a wonderful manual focus system (really a treat). My impression to date is that this is by far the best small / belt-case-size camera for my particular needs. The Sony RX has great optics and low light capability but in the rain forest I need the extra zoom range and better macro working distance. The micro four thirds cameras are exciting but not quite equal to my full frame and too big for the belt (with longer lenses). The Stylus 1 is impressive where I need it.
Two annoying issues.
First, you can access many settings using the touch screen but in some lighting situations the shadow of your hand shuts off the screen (thinking you have your eye up to the viewfinder). The place to change this is located in the Utility menu, OK, but better would be to assign it to a function button (not possible).
Second, the camera ships with the 2x digital extender assigned to the fn1 button. That makes it very easy change and then think you just haven't pulled back to wide angle somehow. I assigned this button to force center focus, nice to be able to do this quickly.
A shot a sequence of comparison photos to post but it seems Amazon is blocking that again. Jerks. At 40mm (equiv.) and f2.8 or f4.0 the crispness of the Stylus was amazingly close to equaling the Nikon D600 (tripod). It drops off a touch at f5.6 and f8.0 shows some softness. Disabling image stabilization on a tripod seems important.
I should have noted how quickly you can access many settings by simply clicking the center "OK" button and then selecting one of the 22 icons for further adjustment (ISO, IS, ND filter, RAW, vivid,focus, flash, WB, Face, and so on). Fast and efficient but you need to be a little bit quick before the display returns to shooting.
Cases: First I tried the Click Elite, too small. Next was the Lowepro Dashpoint 20, still too small. Finally the Lowepro Apex 60, snug fit but a some practice and a little lift on the back lip of the case and in it goes.
See posted cushion 5x7 photos cut from 20" x 30" blowups. It took some effort to match the Nikon's color and sharpness and conditions were perfect for the smaller sensor but amazingly hard to tell the final results apart. Indoor oil painting copies for a publication for a small reproduction were acceptable but the larger format and a perfect 50mm f1.4 showed its advantages.
Modifying the uploaded Amazon photo captions seems to have deleted them. The two cushion photos are 5x7s cut from the middle of 20x30" prints taken outdoors in perfect lighting. The first one is taken by the Olympus, tripod, IS off, ISO 100, 1/800 @f4.0, auto WB, 9mm (42mm equiv.), quite a bit of photoshop color and sharpness work but great results. The second is labeled "Nikon" and taken by Nikon D600 24-85mm at 40mm, ISO 100, IS off, 1/400 at f8.0 no photoshop required.
The third is a nice working distance shot of a pineapple.
Indoor trampoline photos taken without flash at ISO 1600 are generally correctly exposed and focused. Noise (shadows)and grain are visible in an 8x10 but acceptable (much like 35mm tri-x film). Of course this is large sensor territory but a modest print of a great subject and not many would care.
So I decided that I would try to get by with the smaller sensor for now and that I might gain some from the portability. So far (2 months), I have been very happy that I made the purchase. I have been on 2 trips since I received it and even though I took both setups, I have used the Stylus One to shoot 95% of my photos. And while it has an amazing feature set, the primary reason for that is that I can slip it in my cargo shorts pocket and carry it everywhere.
Now I will admit that there are times where a little more bulk (size) just feels better, especially compared to how my dslr feels hanging from my Black Rapid strap. Ready to grab and shoot with just the right size in the hand. (Unfortunately, I have not found an option like that for the Sylus 1. So small that it just bounces around on a strap.)
However, I couldn't be happier with the photos I have captured and the ease of use, features and especially the portability.
