An interchangeable lens means the lens dismounts completely from the
Camera Body to be replaced by another with the same mounting. On the
C2100Z you are using an ACCESSORY lens to compliment the FIXED lens on
the camera body to give you some of the flexibility of the
interchangeable lens cameras. It is a simple distinction often
confused by ambiguous advertising.
The basic lens on the C-2100 is NOT removable you can only ADD
supplementary lenses to it. A dSLR on the other hand has a lens mount
on the BODY of the Camera that permits the lens to be removed
completely and replaced by another.
Hope that helps.
