I have been reading rather conflicting comments and opinions from actual users so far and to be honest I have not yet seen sample images to impress me for a camera being launched with such clout.

As I wrote in the original posting of this thread, I was looking for evidence that the X20 image quality is considerably better than the IQ of its competitors. Sure I understand that its technology and specifications are higher than most of the others, but the question I put to myself is: "Will I (with the X20) get an IQ improvement worth my $600 over an older model of one of the better compacts of another brand? I do appreciate other nice and handy features of the X20 but I am concentrating on IQ for the moment.

I have recently posted some pictures from the 'lowly' P7100 in the Nikon forum and I chose 2 of them to make crops and show them here. The full thread is at:


All P7100 pics were jpegs sooc (some cropping in some). I feel that the clarity of detail and jpeg processing of the P7100 appears to be better than the X20, or at least not so much worse to suggest a worthy improvement by buying the X20. See for yourselves and give me your comments. Remember that we are only talking about IQ at this stage.
