To my eyes the x10 is clearly the winner. More detail in the lens cap, text on lefthand is clearer, plastic bag is better defined as well as the paper clips on the right. Hmmm...and I just bought the x20. I know it's only a sample of one but in this instance it really makes me wonder if fuji improved things with the x20 or not...

Surely the X20 from what I've seen isn't the killer cam that Fuji has said and def not enough in the IQ dept to warrant the cost ... especially jpg to jpg where the X10 was probably one of the best to date of any cameras I've owned.

Hi, Nicknd99,

I found these comparisons to be useful and fairly represented. You used settings which were stable between takes, cameras.

I own an x10.  To my old eyes, as a result of viewing your offerings, it appears that there are noticeable shading differences between the cameras, settings, and are mostly noticeable in the grey areas. Whether one is "better" than the other, based on the greys, I think that call is subjective.

I think the x20 demonstrates more detail in the coffee cup in all shots.

Thanks again for the posting.

Thanks!

Everyone please keep in mind that my experience and knowledge when performing such tests is limited, but I did my best to keep consistent.  BTW, the focus point of the shot is (attempted to be) the "Yashica" label.  I find a bit more detail in the X20 in the second set shot at 100 ISO.  Since I am a JPEG shooter, I have been paying particular attention to discussions on the X20's performance in this department.  That being said there are other things that the X20 brings to the user that I really enjoy such as the LCD overlay in the OVF, potential for faster AF in good light via PDAF, focus peaking (although I use mostly AF), etc.  Speaking for myself, I think I'm in a paralysis by analysis stage.  This is obviously my problem, and not the camera's doing.  I should have been patient and waited for early adopter feedback instead of being an early adopter myself

Thanks for the photos. At the edge of the lens cap, I see substantially more detail in the first of your pictures than in the other 3. But I have no idea what that means. Either all these pictures are good enough or none or them are. I think the LCD overlay and the faster AF make this a camera that will be  more fun to use. Enjoy it.
