The chief points outlined above it is the switch around the front function button that has the largest impact. Exploiters of the XZ-1 will be aware that it has a rotational wheel around the lens that's ideal for clicking among apertures as well as other settings.
In the XZ-2 this click stop motion is still available, but flick the function switch as well as it becomes a completely smooth rotation that can control manual concentrate. So now the lens control ring offers multiple controls, each with a single sensation in the hand as well as increased customization to control what you need. Excellent.
The XZ-2's lens stiff the same 28-112mm f/1.8-2.5 whizz along as its predecessor, but for any lens to sustain a wide f/2.5 aperture at the 112mm equal focal level is telling. But then that is why the camera is a small on the huge size. Gone is the OLED screen, substituted with a higher-resolution 921k dot LCD version.
The screen is climbed on a new bracket for flipping out to all kinds of angles, As well as it is now touch sensitive for a thoroughly hands on experience. It can be used to change the focus point, fire the shut as well as be used to control the camera, all with the touch of a finger.
The Stylus name is not new to Olympus but this new logo form is. We have to admit, Olympus has not had the easiest bunch of names in the past. MJU for instance was never a great name as well as while Stylus is not precisely ace the word seems to propose a digital pen range but the camera grade has absolutely nothing to do with those. It is a lot easier to say. It is probably about time Olympus had something as easy to liberation around a conversation as Lumix or Power Shot.
