LeonardoBarreto: I am about to go for the X10, and this would not derail my decision for at least two reasons: one, no space for the thumb in the back, two, lens is two exposed when camera is off, or no filter thread. Also, lack of mechanical zoom, and extra controls and dials. Last but not least is the speed of lens F1.8 - F4.9 it is good on the 1.8 side, but bad on the other (X10 from Fuji is F2.0-2.8, 28-112mm ... Image quality I can get with my 5DMk2 or my Mamiya+Phaseone back...

I have to have a UV filter on all my camera lenses, and this is finaly a small zoom camera that has the option. Then there is the mechanical zoom lever ..and the on-off on same -- a camera is not all about mega pixels, it is a machine you have to use and take where the photos are. I worked as a photojournalist and got biased about things like prime lenses, hoods, filter threada manual zooms, external dials.... I suppose that is why the X10 has the "pro" badge .... The badge of the sony is "20MP"
