Isn't there a Leica that is based on the 10.1Mp LX5? Sure it's built more ruggedly, but just like the LX5 could be considered a poor man's Leica, so could the X10.

The LX5 is actually based upon the wishes of Leica, who commisioned Panasonic to make their small (and beautiful) D-lux 5, sharing the costs of development, while offering the same camera to two different user segments

D-lux 5 has a nicer body and comes with Adobe Lightroom, otherwise the cameras and files are the same, i have compared the cameras and a few shots myself, and do prefer the grip on the LX5;)
