While the X70 is well-priced and should capture well-detailed shots, the camera has a fixed lens (i.e. there's no zoom). That lens is a 28mm wide angle and while most advanced compacts offer pretty minimal zoom that flexibility is missing. What else is missing? There's no optical viewfinder, and no image stabilization either. Still, the X-70 offers big image quality at a small price, and there's certainly more than a few street photographers that could appreciate that.
