With its predecessor having attained something of a cult status, Olympus’s latest high-end compact camera, the Stylus XZ-2, has a lot to live up to. Read the Olympus Stylus ZX-2 review...
Olympus claims that the AF speed has been improved in the XZ-2, and we were fortunate to have an XZ-1 in the office to test this out. Comparing both the cameras, I can confirm that the Olympus’s claim is true – the XZ-2 is indeed faster.
Further aiding the AF’s ease of use is the touchscreen, which is used to change the AF point and focus the camera.
