Re: x10 vs. Nikon D40

Two of the things that appeal to me about the X10 are the fast lens and the optical view finder. I know the VF is not great, but I can't imagine having to use only an LCD screen to take all photos. Most users also comment on the build quality, the surprisingly good IQ, and the fact that it makes taking photos fun again. Any thoughts on these things vs. some of the competitors?

I also considered an X100, but there seem to be so many technical problems with it that I'm not sure I want to risk that much money on something I may not be able to rely on while traveling.

Thanks for your feedback.
