Review Excerpt

  • Really solid body littered with external controls feels like a camera should; Very bright zoom lens; Clever EXR modes; Raw support.

  • White orb problem; EV dial difficult to turn; Below average battery life; Shallow buffers; Occasional demosaicing errors.

  • Excellent image quality for its class; Very good optical performance from the bright f/2-2.8 4x lens; Quick autofocus, even in very low light; Fast burst modes; EVF fixes the flaws of optical viewfinder in X20; Tilting high-res LCD screen; Excellent feel in the hands; Very good battery life.

  • Top shutter speed is only 1/1000s when lens is wide open; No built-in ND filter; 28mm eq. may not be wide enough for some; Shallow buffer depths; Default NR processing a bit heavy-handed.
