I had them both (X10 and G15) for review for some time.

Initially I liked the X10 more because of the manual zoom lens and overall feel. To my surprise I ended up with the G15, for the following reasons:

- Video is not good on the X10, many jaggies and artifacts. That was the main dealbreaker for me.

- The G15 is smaller and pocketable

- The G15's lens has a longer reach, and is just a bit brighter. As far as I could measure, the lens of the G15 is also sharper.

- The G15's lens can focus much closer on all focal lengths.

That said, if video is of no importance for you, then the X10 should be taken seriously. It draws you a bit more into photography than the G15, which is more a snapshot type of camera. I liked to shoot with the X10 more than with the G15, but when reviewing the end results it was exactly the opposite
