    imo, this is simply the best, most underrated jacket-pocketable camera period. anyone who buys this will be impressed.

    Have you checked that Olympus' warranty is transferable? Because my understanding is that it is not.

    The box says there is a warranty card enclosed, and I'd be glad to provide a copy of my receipt from an authorized US dealer dated 2014-12-09. However, the warranty is regional to "the Americas" so it covers service only in the Western Hemisphere.

    My point is that the warranty will almost certainly only be honoured for the original purchaser, and so someone buying the camera second hand (even if it is entirely unused) cannot benefit from the warranty.

    If that were Olympus's policy, no one who received an Olympus camera as a gift would have any warranty coverage. I have never had trouble getting warranty coverage as long as I had proof of purchase from an authorized distributor within the warranty period.

    Edit: I have talked to Olympus support and was assured that the XZ-2 warranty would be honored, even for a person other than the original purchaser, within a year from the date shown on the purchase receipt.

    That's contrary to their printed warranty Ts&Cs: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/repair_pdfs/warranty_info.pdf

    It might be fine, and perhaps they will do the right thing should there be a problem, but it's dangerous to sell something as a private individual saying that the manfacturer's warranty is transferable when the manufacturer's own documentation says it isn't ... whatever they advise orally.

    If there is any problem from Olympus (though they say there won't be) I will stand behind the warranty and submit the camera to Olympus myself if my buyer returns it to me by December 9, 2015. I will pay for shipping to Olympus and back to my buyer in that case. But my experience and Olympus's representative assure that there will be no need for that.
