Most welcome. ;)

If you go to Photo Sample Search section linked below and put X-5 as the camera (per the screenshot) you will see a good representation of achievable results.

Hey Dennis, I've had an X-5 for many moons and found it to be quite good for what it is....and I've given a very basic review below.
As mentioned above, the optical zoom range is very handy (digital zoom not so good as the SR not enough) and the 1cm macro is surprisingly good IMO.
It has features and functions that can be changed to suit like ISO, white balance, etc.............and it has the much sought after flippy screen!!! :lol:
When the available light is good, the jpeg only images are very useable. If you only want a record of an event or trip without the IQ of a DSLR, I can recommend the X-5. ;)

Not all SDM lenses have the screwdrive focus option. The DA* 55 and the 17-70 are both internal motor focus only.

While social media can do great harm, it can also do wonderful things like this. Such joy and fond memories you must have given that family after so many years.

No, but we can.......... :D

I'm just sorry the system only allowed me to give you one 'Like' for replenishing my faith in human kindness with this great story.

You did a tremendous service for that family. Really well done.;)

In your photos, I don't see the hood extension ring when using the lens on APS-C camera bodies. Do you have it?

Her Majesty ruled for seventy years with a dignity seldom seen, and also with a great sense of humo(u)r already mentioned. The clip below shows Queen Elizabeth II had a side to her personality few would have seen. It made me laugh and I hope it brings y'all a smile too. ;)

Hello amci, you might get more advice if your thread was in Troubleshooting and Beginner Help forum as it is a forum specifically for helping with problems.

I can move this thread there if you want.
