However, to me, the XZ-2 does eliminate the need to upgrade the XZ-1 firmware.
The XZ-1 did answer a crying need to replace that C-8080 boat anchor (I stuck with my C-750UZ, even though it had problems of its own).
But the timing of the XZ-1 release meant it still got a CCD sensor, when small BSI-CMOS sensors made their appearance in a range of long zoom pocket P&S cameras from various manufacturers.
