Hi. I saw your question about the flip-screen on the XZ2. I would say, for me, it is a tremendous improvement. I find I'm shooting at waist level almost all the time now. It is more discreet than the "holding up a stinky diaper" position, and it aids in stabilizing the camera for even lower shutter speeds for still subjects. Also, the screen itself is much improved over the XZ1. It has twice the resolution. Holding the camera at waist level allows me to press the shutter with my right thumb while working the lens ring with my left index finger. That makes it really easy to control the aperture. Finally, the new button inside the lever on the front of the camera I've assigned to ISO and can just spin the lens ring to change it after pushing it, then it automatically goes back to aperture control. Neat. These things make the handling of the XZ2 much better for me.
