I have the X10 and just got the P7700 ... these are my conclusions after comparing them in various shooting conditions ...

P7700 strengths/advantages:

  • Awesome vari-angle LCD
  • Nice lens with great zoom range and sharpness
  • Great controls and dial layout
  • Built-in ND filter
  • Better than expected IQ in good light and even at higher ISOs ... holds up very well to X10

X10 strengths:

  • Much faster/better focus speed - especially in low light
  • Better dynamic range
  • Better overall AWB/white balance performance
  • Better colors and classic Fuji skin tones
  • Overall faster operation
  • Noticeably smaller
So now the tough decision of which to keep My biggest complaint with the P7700 is the low light focus speed. I honestly have very few complaints with the X10 (with new sensor) and my only compelling reasons to keep the P7700 are the LCD and extra zoom range.
