5.0 out of 5 stars XZ-2 is a great upgrade to XZ-1 which is also a super little camera, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Olympus XZ-2 Digital Camera - Black (12MP, 4x i.Zuiko Wide Optical Zoom) 3 inch Touch LCD (Electronics)
My wife has had an XZ-1 for a while now and the results she gets from it are amazing; sharpness and colour being top notch. And it is easy to use once you get used to the olympus menu layouts.
I have always been an olympus fan since the year dot and have been using an E-5 and an E-1 for sometime now. Great cameras and great series of Zuiko lenses.
I must admit I have always fancied a well made point and shoot camera which you can keep in your pocket for use at a moments notice, so I went for an XZ-2 at Christmas.
Well not being biased or anything(well maybe a little bit), I opted for an XZ-2 based on the positive experiences of the XZ-1. I have not been disappointed, indeed I have been absolutely delighted with my purchase.
Love the weight and balance of this little camera, its grip, the tilting LCD screen and the upgraded sensor. Its i-zuiko lens is nice and fast and gives a great sharp focus and the rich colours are really pleasing. Only being playing with this little beauty for a few days but already thinking olympus have a winner on their hands. Its performance in low light is excellent and the multi point AF system works well. Haven't really played with the video yet but not really interested in video anyway. Must admit it is a bit on the expensive side but based on my early brief experience, its worth every penny or maybe that should be 'pound'. Brilliant new compact camera, well done Olympus, a worthy point and shoot compact to sit alongside the equally excellent Pen range. Maybe that could be a problem for this super little camera as its price takes it into the Pen range pricing, especially the last generation Pens.
I'm really pleased I bought this camera!!!!
