Banet Posted November 25, 2013 Share Posted November 25, 2013 Olympus XZ-2 and Pentax MX-1 are bargains now and I would like to buy one of those 1/1.7" sensor pocket cameras. Both of them have fast 1.8-2.5 lens and modern BSI sensors but question is are they good enough to produce stock photos? I analyzed both lists on Alamy (recomended&unsuitable) but it is almost impossible to find any MODERN (produced in last 2-3 years) 1/1.7" cameras on both lists. There is only one Canon model G15 on recomended list and a few also Canon S series models and Olympus XZ-1 on unsuitable list. There is no Panasonic Lumix LX5,7 no other Olympus cameras except XZ-1, no Nikon, no Pentax, no Samsung... I am sure that the best compact now is Sony RX100 but it's price is insane here, even now when it is an old model. It's price is more than twice in compare to XZ-2 and MX-1, and for that money I could buy Nikon DSLR with 18-105 lens or top quality superwide zoom for my current DSLR. Anybody using one of those two cameras for stock? Opinions? Acceptance rates? Other recomendations of similar sized cameras? Both of those cameras should be better performers in low light/high iso than Canon G15 which is on recomended list. For the same amount of money It is possible to buy some older m4/3 models or Canon EOS M but I don't like them because they are not small enough (except with pancake primes), and I don't want another system now because I'm planning to switch to Sony FF for a few years.
