Editor's Review

In a nod to it's top-end K-5's styling, Pentax's X-5 looks like a DSLR but trades the APS-C sensor for a smaller 16 megapixel sensor and 26x manually operated zoom. Other key features include a 10fps burst mode, 1080/30p HD video capture, electronic viewfinder, tilting LCD screen, dual control wheels and manual modes. With enthusiast DSLR handling, the X-5 promises exceptional usability at a very affordable price point, but does so in a much larger package than most of the competition. It's nice to see an extended zoom camera that does something different, and we look forward to seeing how well it all comes together.
