Olympus Stylus 1 review

 

One glance at the Olympus Stylus 1 and it's hard to ignore how much it looks like a smaller version of the interchangeable lens Olympus OM-D series. Only it's not: this is a high-end compact camera with design cues adopted from the company's top-end...

Long zoom with f/2.8 constant maximum aperture, excellent built-in viewfinder, dual function lens ring, fast autofocus, top-spec design

Bulky, expensive, no focus peaking for manual focus, would like wider-angle lens, image quality not great at higher ISO settings

There's no getting around it: the Olympus Stylus 1 is a pricey bit of kit. But is it worth it? Absolutely. Because it's an camera that enables. There's that significant zoom lens with a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture and fast autofocus which saw us...

Olympus Stylus 1

 

For photographers, there is such a thing as love at first sight, particularly when it comes to that moment when you first pick up a camera. Case in point: Olympus' Stylus 1.

Extremely solid, well built body, Terrific ergonomics, Superb LCD screen, Lovely control dial encircling the lens

Convoluted menu structure, Some quality issues at high ISO

Olympus Stylus 1

 

The Olympus Stylus 1 is a cross between and enthusiast compact and a superzoom that covers an impressive 28-300mm zoom range at f/2.8.

Measuring 3.4 by 4.5 by 2.2 inches (HWD) and weighing 14.2 ounces, the Stylus 1 is a bit larger than most compact long zoom cameras, like the pocketable Canon PowerShot SX280 HS (2.5 by 4.2 by 1.3 inches, 8.2 ounces). The Stylus has a noticeably bigger...

Up to a point, more choice is generally a good thing, so it's nice to have another camera to choose from at the top of the advanced compact market. The Olympus Stylus 1 is a very accomplished camera from a veteran manufacturer, and can compete on equal...
