"Great clarity."

I have big hands, but it still fits well into my palm--very comfortable to hold. Been looking for a easy to use, simple Olympus Digital Camera. Reduced kit by one star since enclosed camera bag is too small for camera. I needed a Olympus Digital Camera with a sensor larger than what is on my smartphone. Me and my husband have planned a trip to Bahamas.

"Decent battery life."

Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. I like everything about the camera. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor.

"Quality."

I haven't tried the macro shots yet, but will update this review when I get too. I am so impressed with this Olympus XZ-2! Not to mention it worked great as a Olympus Digital Camera too. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Olympus's excellent system--wow!

"It doesn't creep."

The Olympus V204045SU000 is a great light weight mirrorless camera. The grip is excellent for medium and large hands. I still can tolerate that by just working on selected photos. Been using the Olympus V204045SU000 for about 2 weeks now with no issues. In spite of all the motion on my end, the pictures were sharp.

"Very good quality."

The focus speed in general is so much faster and more reliable. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference. But for me it is the low light improvements. Only gripes are slow focus and short battery life. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1.

With its kit lens, there are several focusing aids. The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill. Right now, this is the best of the breed. Normally I couldn't care less. They're a good choice for all around work.

The Olympus is an awesome camera as most already know. The rest of the bundle seems okay. I will be upgrading to a better lens when finances allow. I expect features to improve and prices to fall. And I wish the Olympus lenses were a bit cheaper.

Great battery life, about 300 shots in cold weather. Overall, I am very satisfied and glad I made the switch. The ergonomics are perfect. I have other tools for different situations. The second problem is the focusing controls.

I can't recommend the Olympus enough. But, this fps was rather limited. Low light is extraordinarily good. Olympus mirrorless system has been advancing rapidly. But white balance flips out often.
