Reasons For

6 Reasons For
12.2MP higher megapixel Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has a megapixel of 24.2MP, however the Olympus Stylus 1S is only a 12MP digital camera (12.2MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

13.2 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has a maximum aperture number of 16, however the Olympus Stylus 1S is only a 2.8 maximum aperture digital camera (13.2 bigger).
Available from 3 shops
The more retailers stock this digital camera, the greater competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.
Ten more awards
The Leica Q (Typ 116) has 11 awards, however the Olympus Stylus 1S has 1 award.
Expert reviews are slightly better

5 Reasons For
Vastly bigger optical zoom Edit
The Olympus Stylus 1S has an optical zoom of 10.7x, however the Leica Q (Typ 116) is only a 1x optical zoom digital camera (9.7x smaller). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

Vari-angle LCD display Edit
The Olympus Stylus 1S has a vari-angle LCD display, however the Leica Q (Typ 116) does not have a vari-angle LCD display.
Significantly higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
The Olympus Stylus 1S is a 1,040,000 pixels display resolution digital camera, whereas the Leica Q (Typ 116) is only a 104,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (936,000 pixels lower).
Lighter Edit
The Olympus Stylus 1S is a 402g digital camera. That's 188g lighter than the Leica Q (Typ 116) (402g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

£2,869 cheaper
The Olympus Stylus 1S costs £530.00, whereas the Leica Q (Typ 116) is £3,399.00.
