Pentax X70 review
By: Paul Nuttall, What Digital Camera (Mar 12, 2009)
The X70 offers the usual array of scene modes, plus the full PASM complement. What’s more impressive, though, is how it manages to squeeze a 24x optical zoom in to a body not much larger or heavier than some bulkier compacts. On paper at least, it’s a good little camera. However, in use the X70 is slow, image quality is distinctly average, and it’s far too expensive.
