Shakens: would have got a X10 if it wasn't for the orb issue so may get one of these

I eventually bought an X10 last December after delaying because of criticism of both the the white orbs issue and the viewfinder. I was really annoyed that I had taken heed of all the rubbish written about this camera as the viewfinder is bright (and there are no white orbs) and resolution using the in-camera conversion is great - I can print landscapes at A3 no problem at full resolution taken at ISO 200 with 200% dynamic range so you don't need an ND Grad filter to get detail in the sky. The build quality is great and it is a pleasure to take pictures with. Never mind the supplied software issues - use the camera's powerful processor to convert the raw files and you can do further tweaks in Photoshop if you want to. I got the camera and the genuine Fuji leather case for £360.

I'd be more impressed if it had a viewfinder

I've just bought a Fujifilm X10 after about a year or so of deliberation and I am really pleased with it. One of my "must have's" was an optical viewfinder and I don't understand why so few "enthusiast" cameras have one. OK it doesn't have full coverage on the X10 but you soon get to know how to allow for that and if it is critical you can just check the shot you've taken on the LCD. My ideal carry-everywhere camera would be an X10 with a 100% coverage viewfinder.
