I bought an XZ-2 as a back up to my DSLR. I wanted something that would give me the same type of manual control that I have with the DSLR, and had a tilting LCD touch screen. I looked at a lot of other camera's before settling on the XZ-2. What a wonderful camera. Complete manual control, art filters, and a sensor and lens that work together to make incredibly sharp images. This camera has reawakened my interest in photography! I take it with me every day, everywhere I go, since it's small enough to fit in my shirt pocket!
I think Olympus made a big mistake when they discontinued it. I've seen the Stylus 1. It's too big for a pocket. And the SH-2's photo's aren't as sharp. This is perhaps the perfect combination of size and function. Not too small, (like some of the competitions cameras), and not too large. If it were up to me, I'd resume production of the XZ-2 and continue with the Stylus 1s. But at least I got mine while they were still there to be bought!

I have purchased many different cameras over the years, always trying to find the perfect compact... I have found it with the XZ-2!
This camera is perfect in every way and the performance is simply amazing.
Also, this is the most fun camera I have ever used with the array of filters included, my very favorite : Key Line.
I cannot understand how such a great camera could be discontinued, I feel like getting another one just for spare in case I was to loose mine...
