The XZ-2 uses the same lens as its predecessor, giving it a full-frame equivalent focal range of 28-112mm and a maximum aperture that starts at F/1.8 at the wide and and drops to just F/2.5 at full-zoom. Surrounding the lens on the XZ-2, however, is a new Hybrid Control Ring. It can work in both digital and analog modes. Switched to digital, it has click stops in its rotation for controlling things like zoom and aperture. Switched to analog, it turns smoothly for controlling things like manual focus. The control ring is a feature we've liked on cameras like the Canon S100 and the Sony RX100, so it's good to see it added here.
