Question Pentax X-5

Since I am on a very limited budget, I have been looking at the X-5.
Do any of you own it?
Is it a good camera for the bridge type?
Any other suggestions in the same price range,
if the X-5 is not as the promos say?


Thank you

Since I have received no replies, I assume no one uses this camera. That tells me a lot right there. So I will skip the X-5 and see what else is out there in my price range. Any suggestions?

For a nice bridge camera you might want to consider a Panasonic FZ200. I purchased the Panasonic and am quite pleased with its features and performance. There is a Sanpsort comparison of the FZ200 and X5 at this link:

My budget is under 300 dollars so the Panasonic is out of my price range, but thank you for your reply.
