It’s lighter than the V1 by about 30g and it looks like the two biggest criticisms of the V1 – the easily-moved wheel and the paddle that flips up and down easily – may have been addressed.
I think the V1 is much prettier, but the V2 may have the features I want in a small camera.
Same size sensor
14.2megapixels versus 10.1 in the V1
Same 3:2 aspect ratio
Diopter adjustment now goes to +2 (great for me)
Looks like a NEX series Sony camera from this angle.
