Pentax Optio A20 Review

Review Summary
Review: "As is the nature of this business the Option A20 replaced the A10 only seven months after that model had been announced (and is itself about to be replaced by the further upgraded A30). The |A10 was one of the disappointments of last year, offering typical Pentax high quality output and wealth of features but with serious performance issues that made using it frustrating to say the least. The A20 has a new ASIC (processor), two million more pixels (10.0 MP 1/1.8-inch sensor) and a handful of new features...

So does the A20 deliver the necessary improvements? The sad answer is not nearly enough. Instead of taking the good stuff (the image quality) and concentrating on what was really wrong with the A10 (the performance) Pentax decided what it really needed was more pixels. This is like putting wide rims and low profile tires on a car that stalls every five miles. It doesn't fix the real problem but 'hey, look! big wheels!'."
