Do check out the Compact Cameras board to see what people are thinking of those in particular:

I think they're a rather fun sort of camera. (I've had something similar, though a different brand and a model from a number of years ago,) ....As to what kind of bargain they are, I suppose that depends on the price of them, (I haven't really been following them.)

You might like to compare to an entry-level DSLR kit, too. Some nice ones of those are getting quite reasonable.

For anyone else looking. Amazon seems to have some good prices for the X90 and the reviews also look good: Pentax X90. The camera is a bit old (released early 2010 I think) but the zoom and quality seems to be good.

I feel, if you are looking at a camera of this size, you should just look into a DSLR. Otherwise look at a smaller compact.
