DS21 seems to be on a mission to prove the X20 is a bad camera.  It's a pity that the review he posts a shot from says in its conclusion:

"The Fujifilm X20 is not only the camera that irons out its predecessor's orb-related imaging issues, it's also the camera that pushes image quality up a notch to class-leading levels."

and

".... The one thing that the X20 has missed out on - in order to make the very most from its 28-112mm f/2.0-2.8 equivalent lens - is a built-in neutral density filter. Sounds small, but we're surprised at its omission.

That small blip aside and this is high-end compact camera perfection. We've got a lot of love for the X20, and it's given us a lot of love back. The high-end compact camera hierarchy has a new champion: all hail the Fujifilm X20."

and they give it 5 stars

It doesn't sound as though they agree does it?

Have you actually looked at the sample images in full size from their review? It does not inspire confidence in their competence if they arrived to the conclusion after shooting these kind of dreadful images.

I agree that X20 is a great 2 MP camera in JPEG, if this is what you are demanding of it.
