    The 100% views of X20 photos on Flickr tell the story. The X20's xtrans sensor and lens combination give and exceptionally sharp resolution at low ISO.

    Add in a well implemented optical viewfinder, decent auto-focus, fast aperture, and larger than usual compact sensor - that was enough- the X20 sold me.

    Ordered from one of the Asian eBay camera shippers with a decent track record. Will be here within a week or two.

    Now to get yet more winter shots with the X-E1 this week - Mid-March temps in the mid 20s Fahrenheit. :)

    I want one too but I'll wait for the price to drop unless I can pick one up cheaply this week.
    My only doubt is the way in which smooth areas like distant foliage and feathers are being smoothed rather a lot - even at Base ISO.
    Perhaps setting the NR to -2 will help but I want to see more samples of distant trees in poor daylight with sharpness retained to the left edge of the frame.

    The camera seems to handle detail brilliantly ; it's the smooth areas that bother me. So come on guys get testing :)

    Since I didn't win the contest I will have to buy one. It will be a few months before I do but will keep dreaming until then.

    Out of curiosity - what hood do you (plan to) use with the x20?

    Don't know what hood yet ... But will probably get the 46mm adapter and start from there.

    Great camera. Bought mine two weeks ago and it hasn't been out of my hands. As you can see from these images taken from the moment I switched it on until now.
