Olympus Stylus XZ-2 iHS Digital Camera Review
The XZ-2 is a solid upgrade to the beloved XZ-1, but it falls behind in terms of image quality.
In many ways, the XZ-2 provides a Micro Four Thirds user experience in a fixed-lens body. The menu systems and touch interface are all but exactly alike, and the body shape is more like a PEN than ever. This similarity, of course, comes at a price: it means the camera lacks the immediate ease of use of some competing models, like the Canon G15 or Samsung EX2F. The menu system is deep and at times less than clear, some of the UI's best features are hidden by default, and the handling is a disappointment (though still good). However, advanced amateurs and pros using the XZ-2 as a backup body will certainly appreciate the degree of fine control the camera affords.
