Pentax X70 review

Great Camera!!!
Apart from my Pentax K200D which are, sometimes, too bulky and heavy for some of my trip.
-I've got 250+ shots with one full charge in day time.
-Great Zoom range.
-Image Quality is pretty good compare to its class, almost match a DSLR!!! especially with ISO up to 400.
-Image quality is excellent up to ISO400, and is still very good at ISO800 while ISO1600 is still relatively good.
-EVF is clear & Bright, I use it all the time.
-LCD works well, however, I rarely use it when taking photos except those taken in strange positions which I can't use the EVF.
-Manual controls is like a DSLR, you can manually control everything, and is what I really love since most of competitors don't offer this level of control to a point & shoot cameras.
-Design is like a junior PENTAX DSLR.
-It handled and gripped well with one hand.
-Focussing is good but it still works more like point & shoot rather than a DLSR.
-Haven't try Video feature yet.
