Took it to Paris last week: it's getting better learning how touse it properly:
The X10 is: surprising everybody good looking easy(ier) to handle a GREAT (little) camera
Next city trip will be whitout bulky SLR(Exif read out shows that the zoom range is just right)
Regards from Holland (sadly enough ;-)
Having used the XZ1 and the X10 for more than 2 months now (as a former G7, 10 and 12 owner) you'll get much better results from both the XZ1 and the X10, build around very good optics, being very different camera's.
Colors on both are better, and being brighter gives them advantages (fe creativity, shallower DOF etc. which is about the same: the XZ1 being slightly brighter vs the X10's bigger sensor).
Both of the "low light"modes work well, though the X10 is less noisy in both EXR and low light mode.In low light ( one of the main reasons to buy brighter lenses) the XZ! is not as fast or responsive as the X10.The X10 is solid and responsive (almost Slr like,i think it will cause less use of my bulkier slr sets).
Regarding the so called ORB's of the Fuji; firmware is on the way, but in everyday photography it isn't that obvious as claimed by some:
so start taking pictures, and stop writing about camera's you've never really used, and enjoy..
