XZ-2 (or maybe not)
Nov 18, 2012

Earlier in the year - I posted that I had sold my Fuji F31, and was looking for a new camera.
Several pointed me to Olympus XZ-1, there were a few things I wanted it missed ... in particular lack of full HD video.

I use my camera for underwater photography – and XZ-1 was well respected in that niche.
The new XZ-2 is now out ...  what is the considered opinion on this replacement ?
Same lens (which was bright & well rated), slightly larger sensor increased ASA to 12,800
Increase to 12.8 megapixel   and full HD video.
Initial reviews I have seen don't seem very favourable, pointing out that Olympus have not kept up with trends.  They point instead to Sony RX100 is far better performer
