Didn't think I was going to wade back into compact cameras, but got a deal on an X20, and even after owning the X-E1, I am pleasantly surprised with the X20. I love how the zoom doubles as a power button and also the fact that it didn't have the sluggish startup time of a power zoom. I still have my EF-42 flash, and some flash assistance goes a long way. It's great to have Fuji jpegs SOOC that are so presentable. There's a definite look and feel to Fuji images that contrasts with, say, the Ricoh GR that I was shooting with today as well. I don't really shoot with zooms much, but I have to say it's nice to have one lying around. The satisfaction is so quick and instant. Set focal length, snap, you're done! One thing I've noticed is the rear dials are a bit touchy. Too much pressure one way or the other and you have to redo your attempt. Slows thing down more than it should.
