Editors Didn't Like

  • The X5's shooting performance is really slow, and it's not good indoors without a flash and in low-light conditions
  • Dynamic range, Sluggish EVF, Lens distortion, Colour fringing
  • Poor controls. Washed-out LCD. Slow AF
  • Stabilization is ineffective, white balance unpredictable
