Please post studio comparison shots. Great design & concept like x10 - perfect for stage, music,etc. (low light) with hopefully better resolution!

pleasant and sexy idea, well executed = lovely!
suggestion: minimize the flash shadow on the far leg through retouching

Either the G12 or the Nikon P7100 offer great control and options (articulated screens, raw files at any ISO) for 1/3 less cost - and with higher absolute quality - judging by the samples now available). The main advantage of the X10 seems to be it's very fast lens - but with less reach than the others. We're all eagerly awaiting the DP full review on the X10, or at least some samples that really show it's low light performance. Isn't there anyone on the testing staff that shoots at night?? Nightclubs, dancers, even available light portraits - SOMEthing that those of us who shoot low light situations can use to evaluate performance?
Klein's advice is also great -- "hand feel" is crucial and individual for those who actually work with a camera for extended periods. Smaller cameras (S95/ S100) are harder to hold still, and have no way to trigger external flash.
