... should be exceptionally sharp!

Decided to give the X10 another try. Just picked up another brand new unopened one.

I'm going to give it a bit more time and try a few different settings, keeping it near f5 and checking focus carefully. It maybe that the detail is just not anywhere near that of the the GF3 but already, the few pics from this one seem to have a marked improvement.

I'll leave a note here about how it goes.

Thanks for all the good info and advice everyone.

The X10 is an amazing little camera. It should be exceptionally sharp!Take a look at a year's experience with X10.


That said I do find that at Macro or super macro it can on occasion focus on sharp contrast behind intended focus point. By shifting back and forth a bit and doing focus / refocus it works out. It also depends on whether camera is set to WA (you can get super close) or Tele (you have to back off from subject) in Macro and Super Macro.
