Nice and interesting content but I honestly cannot see anything in them to justify the $600 price tag. I believe the same or better IQ can be achieved with cams of $400 or less eg G12/15, P7100/7700, LX5/7.

What is the wow factor or element of these images (always technically speaking) that makes the X20 so special worth 50% or more of the other models, including the X10?

Thanks for taking the trouble to post and show people real life samples of the new cam.

So, lets say the IQ was identical to the other cameras that would mean you would ascribe no value to the much more usable viewfinder (or just plain it has a viewfinder), on lens zoom, very good UI.

If none of things are of value to you, then you are right why bother paying for them and look elsewhere.

Of course I ascribe some value to the features you mentioned. If the X20 IQ proves at least as good as the rest then it would be purely a matter of the value one places on the 'extras'. $200 or 50% more seems excessive to me but it may be peanuts to somebody else depending on how he/she values those extras. But let's first establish beyond doubt that the IQ is up to scratch. Let's wait and see direct comparisons of its jpegs and raws versus some of the other high end compacts.

If anybody has the X20 and one of the other compacts, please chime in with comments and actual images. I'm sure many will appreciate it.
