    Being the first day of spring, I had to grab a few pics of it:

    A balmy 27 degrees Fahrenheit, and plain to see spring bursting out all over up here!

    Perhaps a touch of humor, but the shots are from today. :)

    :dance: spring at the opposite side of the earth perhaps?
    Well, I guess you are enjoying the winter look.

    Heh! But wait, yes it's truly spring in Minnesota as can be seen from this one nicely captured by the X20 (~1/2 size crop):

    What a beautiful scenery.
    And a tribute to the capabilities of the X20!
    Thanks for sharing,

    I went to the NHL All-Star game in Minnesota in 2004 and I still haven't warmed up.

    Nice images, How are you enjoying the X20?

    Ah, c'mon Mitch. Warming up is over-rated. ;)

    I like the X20 a heck of a lot. I wish I could get a level-indication in the viewfinder display, I miss that from the X-E1.

    The X-E1 obviously outpaces the X20 for image quality, cropability, and low-light performance.

    But the X20 is a bit more fun to shoot as it's lighter and smaller, and also provides the control I want toward shutter speed, ISO, and aperture.

    It's a bit like asking if you want to drive a bigger BMW sedan or the Mini-Cooper? Depends! (I suppose most of us wish we could drive either. :) )
