Firmware version 1.3 turns this into a pocket monster.

Edward V. Hawk, Amazon

  • Summary: I was initially disappointed with this camera when I first got it. The focus issues other reviews have mentioned in low or even medium light were just frustrating to deal with. After the 1.3 version update (released earlier this year) - its fantastic. You can take not only usable, but fantastic photos in incredibly low light - even for an SLR. ISO 800 @ f1.8 is around1/50th of a second in a very, very dark bar, concert or room.

Excellent compact camera

Ernest Pearson, Amazon

  • Summary: Was an excellent value at about 50% off the original price. Camera focuses quickly, has all the controls an advanced amateur wants, and takes excellent quality pictures. Beats lugging along DSLR and lenses on hiking trips.

  • Summary: Months ago, I sold my old Canon SX1 and shortly thereafter regretted no longer having a camera with a built-in "macro" close up feature, as I take a lot of close ups, often extreme close ups. In eventually looking for an alternative replacement for an "all in one" enthusiast-type camera (as a convenient carry around camera when I do not want to carry my pro class cameras and lenses), I sought a camera with a moderate sized sensor, minimal chromatic fringing, and able to...

Excellent for the money!

  • Summary: Camera pack a lot of advanced features for this price. Everything can be set manually, it's good to carry around (not really for regular pockets). Professional reviews also praise it, and after this massive price cut this is ideal Advanced Point and Shoot camera!

Simply amazing camera

Mithun Kumar, Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: I was amazed to actually see the menus and the features provided in this little wonder. It has almost all the features of the fantastic mirrorless OM-D camera of Olympus, except the sensor size and ability to change lenses. Speaking of lenses, the f/1.4 wide lens is just amazing to start with... In short its everything worth the price!

XZ-2 olympus digital camera-white

thomas wm. alexander, Amazon
14 May 2014
  • Summary: Since I had purchased a black body version for my wife, I decided to order the white color for myself, and am very happy with my decision. I was very much surprise that it arrived much sooner than was expected, and for that I am a happy person. Since I had viewed the customer pro's and con's on line prior to my order, most review were very positive, the reason for ordering this Olympus XZ-2 model.

Love this camera

  • Excerpt: Already have two Olympus DSLR's. This has almost all the same features including the menu structure in a compact camera and a wider aperture, but it's so much easier to carry around. In a side by side comparison the IQ of the E-620 is better than the xz-2, but the xz-2 still takes great pictures for most applications. I'm planning to take this on my next vacation and leave the DSLR's at home.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Short Lag Time
  • Cons: No Viewfinder

An excellent P&S….

Dante, B&H Photo
24 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I purchased this P&S as a complement to my Olympus Micro Four Third Pen EP-2 because they both share Zuiko optics. I wanted to be sure my pictures would have the same accurate color reproduction and overall clarity of subject matter. I'm enjoying all the features of this camera & it's very user friendly if you're already accustomed to using Olympus brand cameras. Menu is easy to learn & navigate. The ergonomics are very good and the build quality is solid.
  • Pros: Accurate Colors Repro, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Sharp clear images, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact, Solid build
