Making another desperate attempt to keep this thread going, even though it eventually gets us knowares.

Here are two more shots from the same afternoon. It was an unexpectedly balmy and pleasant winter afternoon.

The DP2 image is clearer, with fewer edge artifacts and I think better color (certainly more variety).

The Fuji X10 still comes very close though. Surprisingly good for a small sensor.

If you click my name you can go to my DPR gallery and download the HD originals if you're interested.

Are you still using the Fuji OOC JPEG vs. the DP2 RAW converted in SPP?

What software are you using to resize, Elements?

I have to be honest, I still think these images are disparate (aperture, shutter speed) with what looks to be sharpening applied to the X10 image, which appears to have a bit more fine detail despite the sharpened edge lightening, although the colors are definitely off. The Fuji also shows more detail in the shadowy areas (trunk, bark).

largely irrelevant because the DP2's JPG engine pulls as much detail as SPP Does (you just need to PP) and it's hard to beat the X10's excellent JPG engine using RAW

A RAW shot Canon G10 in Capture one will beat both easily (especially the X10 which is a good 6Mp at best) for detail and that's a 4yr old camera with a 1:1.6" chip

An acquaintance showed me some of his G11 (or was that G12) photos taken in available light at fairly high ISO. I like my X10 better, but I tend to process the images a little more.
Thanks again for all your comments and discussion.

Eventually I'll try printing some comparison shots, having just bought an Epson R2000 printer. This should open my eyes.

Thank you very much for making this comparison, it is absolutely relevant as a crucial issue for me is the price for getting a new camera; this is mostly underestimated or neglected in dpreview; the best camera is the one you can afford to buy!!

I own the dp2 and am planning to get the x10, so your posting is the best argument i have yet seen; i started serious photopgraphy with the legendary f31, thus the x10 seems like a very good continuation, and i think naturally of using 6mp yet honestly had not thought it could get anywhere close to the dp2

Since fuji cameras tend to fall in price after a few months, i will wait and thus also get the new firmware; i actually like pictures of street lamps and the sun behind trees, so i heed the warnings yet am mostly indifferent to fussing too much since it will in any case be much better than the red foveon patterns;)

Happy you make this work, and using a smallsensor i find it correct to compare the ooc jpg of x10 to the raw of dp2, that will be my preferred workstyle since i understand that the wb of x10 is pretty correct and especially skin colour natural

I had planned to use the semi-promised dp3, which realistically would have had a 28-84mm lens, so the x10 fills that long-avaited spot, which sigma sadly failed to manifest, and the x10 has so much more to love in actual shooting situations
