Great pictures!

I am also quite impressed with how the X20's JPEGs are well rendered, especially in contrasty shadows such as the leafy lettuce on the sandwich shot (yum).

It's the sharpness that really makes this camera distinct, even at the corners. Not perfect, mind you, but way above average for cameras of this class!

For such a small sensor, I am really impressed at the amount I can recover from shadows  even under harsh backlighting!

Difficult to say really. This image is ISO 100 and even scaled down to 2 MP the trunk looks quite grainy. But as you say, difficult lighting conditions and without a comparison image it's difficult to say whether other premium compacts would perform any better.

Please X20 owners - if you want to show of your camera's capabilities please let us see full resolution images.

This is a post shot. The grain IS intentional. Not all grains are unintentional noise, this was applied from DxO filmpacks. While I do understand this is a Finepix forum, making artful compositions' not outside the realm of P&S. The slight flare is also intentional. I had to pull this from an email draft since it's original is on an external drive somewhere... (still looking for it).

Also, look around this forum, there are LOADS of great High Rez samples littered about!
