x10 to xs-1?
Oct 5, 2012

I might need my head examined, but because of some recent changes in my life, I am not really using my x10 much anymore. I just love the x10 and everything about the exr processor and of course those Fuji colors.

But......I need a longer zoom as "zooming with my feet" is not an option most of the time now. I've taken a good look at the reviews and specs for the HS-30 and XS-1 and it looks like the XS-1 would be the closest match since as far as I can tell from the specs the sensor is the same that is in the x10.

So now the main question - I realize I am talking about going from a decent 2.8 constant zoom lens to a super zoom type lens with variable aperture - am I going to be very dissapointed with the difference in IQ?

Also to add to the confusion, the price of the HS30 has come down to be very attractive, but it has a smaller sensor.
