I had the X10 and sold it to get the X20 ... but ended up with the G15. The G15 has some advantages but also isn't quite as fast and the DR isn't as good as the X10. IQ wise the G15 is very good and poss better in low light/high ISOs and the lens is powered not manual. Video is better and it has a built-in ND filter and higher res LCD screen.    The X10 has a better viewfinder and a manual lens. The X10 is essentially a 6MP camera and the G15 a higher res 12MP camera - better for large prints. So they both have there pluses and minuses ... it depends on your needs as to which is better.

The X10 is essentially a 6MP camera if you want to use all the EXR bells and whistles, or shoot in RAW. if you are happy to use full-resolution OOC jpegs, then it is a very good, conventional 12MP camera, with the great advantage of a decent viewfinder and a zoom function that is pleasant to use. Unlike most of its competitors.

If you don't want the DR or low light advantage of the EXR then sure you can shoot full 12MP ... but if you are going to do that then there are better cameras than the X10 out there.

Not with an optical viewfinder or excellent, fast zoom lens that you can operate manually, there aren't. Which one did you have in mind? Sure, for absolute quality I will continue to use my Pentax K5. But for lightweight trips and out-and-about general shooting, I have not yet encountered a better combination of features and performance than the X10, for all its quirks (which are many).
