Hi all, I am considering getting a used XZ-2 to use mainly as a street camera. I wonder if I can zone focus properly with this camera. When in MF, do I have a distance scale that marks the distance in meters? And if yes let's say I set the distance to 2 meters, when I turn the camera off and on will it keep my distance setting?

Also can I use the Auto iso in all of the PASM modes and set a max iso? Thanks in advance.


#01, Manual-Focus keeping even if XZ-2 power off..

Yes, it's available. And, XZ-2 can easily switch AF and MF by way of Control-Lever in default. Once in MF mode adjustable of XZ-2, Manual-Focus can be adjustable by way of Control-Ring.

#02, setting of max ISO limited with AUTO option for P/A/S/M of XZ-2 ..

No, there is no such this setting to get XZ-2 with max ISO to be limited while in AUTO option.


For more detail, kindly please refer to the FAQ of the official XZ-2 site as the below link :
