Jerry,

I'm guessing you will end up disappointed with the X20 and you will be looking for a used X10.  I have an early production X10 in perfect condition with the original sensor, and since I now have a X-E1 I'll be happy to sell it to you.  Yes I really am a very nice guy.

The X10 turned out so well and mine was just perfect.  The colors, the ease of use, and the excellent JPGs out of camera really sold me on the Fuji mindset.

What I have seen so far from X20 sample shots is that even at ISO 100-200 in good light the noise is palpable.  Still I prefer it to the smoothness of the X10 because the finest details such as foliage (false detail or not) are clean in the X20 sample shots.  If I didn't already have an X-E1 I would be very interested in the X20.  I could do large prints with X20 images, but X10 struggles at sizes even as small as 13"x19".

Also from the X20 sample shots I've seen, the X20 might have just a hair less dynamic range than the X10, but this is not a big difference I think.  To some I am sure it really matters.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy your X20.  Even though I have a X-E1 I still find the X20 very tempting, and eagerly await the DPR review.
