Olympus XZ-2 + spare battery

Hi folks

I bought my black XZ-2 to go on holiday, during which it behaved perfectly. Now I've no real use for it and it's gathering dust. I have the cables and box and a spare battery.

Am looking for 275 including special delivery

Re: Olympus XZ-2 + spare battery

Hi Ceri,

I am interested in the xz-2 and spare battery. Could you answer some questions for me please.
Normal 4/3 and micro 4/3rds have a factor of 2 when assessing the focal length range. What factor does the xz-2 have?
What is the extent of the 4 x zoom ie mm to mm as quoted by Olympus? Then I can apply the factor above to get 35mm equivalent
Will it take SDHC cards?

My best regards
JohnWB

Re: Olympus XZ-2 + spare battery

Hi John - I honestly have no idea re the factor. Perhaps someone on here knows...?.
SDHC - Yes

For anyone interested - Am getting a lot of interest in PM for this - will have to be a case of selling to the first person to go for it

Yes it takes SD cards. The lens is 6mm-24mm (28mm-112mm equivalent) so the cropping factor is 4.7. The maximum aperture range is f/1.8-2.5 (wide - tele).
