Olympus STYLUS XZ-2 Review
By Josh Fate
|The Olympus Stylus XZ-2 is a compact and powerful digicam. It provides higher image quality and better performance than you will find from most compact cameras; but, it comes at a cost with a MSRP of $599 USD. Read more in our Full Conclusion.|
Hybrid control rings aside, the XZ-2 is a well equipped camera, featuring a 12-megapixel BCMOS image sensor, the aforementioned 4x optical zoom, and the TruePic VI Image Processor; which is popping up on much more expensive cameras. Speaking of that zoom lens, it is rated between f/1.8 at its widest angle to f2.5 at full zoom? That's practically unheard of in the point-and-shoot market, and should allow pros and newbies alike to take some impressive shots; whether in lower lighting, or when trying to capture some pleasing bokeh effect in close up shots.
