Actually, a better sensor and processor would do wonders for it. Right now, the Olympus Pen E-PL5 seems to have it beat by a mile or light year. Scroll half way down this page:

They don’t have the X20 rating yet, but it will be pretty close to the X10, if not worse. When you figure the E-PL5 cost less, has a better/more efficient sensor that is twice as big and takes MUCH better/sharper images, it’s a much better bang for the buck camera. You can put all kinds of lenses on it for any occasion, if you so desire. Also, the AF and FPS are much faster, video is better and that touch screen makes it a pretty nice package. This information is for people thinking twice about the X20's IQ or if it's not living up to all your expectations and you still have time to return itbefore it's too late

PS, the JPEG's from this camera come out very sharp and clear without any smearing or water colors very easily and very little post processing.

Interesting you should mention the E-PL5. That was the call I made a few weeks ago after waiting to see what the X20 delivered - to go with the E-PL5.

I have to correct you on one of your facts though - a micro four thirds sensor (17.3 x 13mm = 224.9 sqr mm) is around four times the size of the X20 sensor (8.8 x 6.6mm = 58 sqr mm).
