I owned the X70 for about 2 weeks and I returned it. During the 2 weeks I tried various settings and conditions and I was consistently disappointed with the image quality. I am comparing it to other compact and super-zoom cameras. I love Pentax cameras, I've owned 4 Pentax DSLR's and they always impressed me. But compared to other manufacturers super-zooms, the X70 was a let-down. Problems: Image quality disappointing. Menu system is archaic, as is it was created for the DOS system.View review in forums Leave a comment on this review
