After the errors of the x10....It is time to improve

The advantages of getting a new model are:

1. no more orbs

The sensor for the newly repleased XF1 shows heavy blooming (not orbs).  Surely this sensor will be in any X20.

2. slightly improved images at low light conditions, e.g. 12Mp not at 6Mp

3. better wide angle 24mm instead of 28mm

Would be nice.

4. improved aperture from f2.0 to f1.8

Such a change is trivial.

5. much better battery life

Doubtful.  They will use the same size battery.

6. better video and raw output.

Video is always Fuji's weak point and they show no sign of getting any better.  RAW output is likely to stay the same.

If they can achieve enhancements as stated above I think they have done a good job, they would be easier for them to sell this camera. The worse part it that it would be selling at premium price close to those from RX100 or XZ2 around $600 retail.

The question is would existing X10 users upgrade or more targeted towards new users like me?
