Strangely there is an increasing number of reviews of the X20 by professional reviewers, or blogs by professional photographers who look very positively on the X20.  (Google X20 reviews to find them)

At the same time there are posts on this forum by some folks who honestly admit to being beginners which show photographs which are poor, as well as some others which could have been better taken (and some decent shots as well).  The evidence of poor results is seized on by those who are determined that the X20 is going to be a failure as evidence to support their wishes.  (It is not difficult to take a bad photo with a good camera....I do it all the time!)

I have not yet upgraded from my X10, as I am waiting for prices to settle, as well as for further reviews.

However which set of current evidence do you believe?

I know which I do

Good shooting

The evidence so far points to the substandard JPEG engine in the camera, which will cause problems in all shooting situations where low contrast detail is present,

You and some others keep saying about evidence of substandard JPEG.  What are you people talking about?  I see a lot of great photos taken with X20.  What poor substandard JPEG are you talking about?
