Pentax makes great dSLRs, no doubt, but their fixed-lens cameras are rather uninspiring. The X90 does little to break the monotony -- it's a serviceable superzoom with a big lens, but simply that zoom factor can only do so much to offset the ho-hum image quality. Simply put, there are better superzooms out there.
