 Abstract. In this paper we consider the notion of $n$-isometry on a Banach space. We determine the existence of non-isometric $2$-isometries for the classes of weighted shifts and composition operators on $\ell_p$ spaces. We also address similar questions for weighted composition operators acting on the space of scalar valued continuous functions, defined on a compact Hausdorff topological space.
