As a matter of fact, between these four Compacts in this DPR comparison (X10 vs. XZ1 vs. LX5 vs. S100), the 1st one seems to be the better option (bigger sensor is better that a slightly faster lens?), not that I shouldn't consider it... or which is more, if I should consider any other camera in that range..., but please feel free for any suggestion. My two cents. Cheers, C

A bigger sensor can be better but it needs to be significantly larger

The X10 sensor is only marginally larger then its rivals, like the XZ-1 (only a factor 1,2). A micro-four-thirds is four times bigger (4x) and that only gives about a two-stop advantage in noise. So don't expect magic from that 1,2 bigger factor.

The LX5, XZ-1, EX-1 and X-10 all have great lenses (Leica,Zuiko,Fujinon,Kreuztner) and I would suggest you select on features that suit you in daily shooting and not on IQ, since that in my opinion doesn't make a significant difference between all these compacts.
