Is it still worthwhile buying an X10 now?
Nov 28, 2012

Hi,

The X10 has been released for than 6 months and their current prices on Ebay are fairly competitive about $400-$450. Is current competitors are LX7($299), RX100($600), XY2($580), S110($530)all based on Ebay prices. The direct competitor is now LX7.

Knowing the X10 orb problem exists in older sensor, I believe the newer sensor don't have this problem, do you think it is worthwhile still to buy the X10? If I buy new from Ebay there is a risk of getting the older sensor and hence the warranty (incl. exchanging sensor) may not be covered  locally. If I buy it 2nd hand I may get the older sensor.

Please give your reasons.

Canon PowerShot S110 Fujifilm X10 Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 Sony RX100
