I've studied the XZ-10, appears to be more or less equal to my G15, except gives up the system aspects (flash attach, viewfinder, etc.) in exchange for pocketability.  I previously owned a XZ-1, which was a very good camera, sold it when I acquired the G15.

So the trade-off between the XZ-10 and the F900EXR is fast lens vs. long reach.  If I were you I would certainly put my hands on both before deciding, this little Fuji is that good.  I've always been a fan of fast lenses on small cameras, but this may be the exception.

Here's the full frame ISO1600 8mp brick wall shot, with default ACR settings applied, i.e. 25 sharpening, 0 luminance NR, 25 color NR:

Added by edit - be sure to view this image at 100%, the camera jpg is essentially equal to the ACR rendering.
