Complex says: Last year we saw the enthusiasts' fixed-lens compact market explode with great offerings from Panasonic and Canon. At CES we saw more companies looking to challenge the top gunners with compacts filled with impressive specs. One such model is the upcoming Olympus XZ-1. With a three-inch OLED screen outback, nice dual-control dials integrated into the design, as well as a large sensor and a bright, fast lens, the XZ-1 is one of the cameras we're checking for in 2011.
