As well they should.  FUJIFILM muffed the 2/3" sensor in a spectacular fashion.

If each and every one is not a perfect ten point star without the slightest hint of sensor blooming expect users to throw Fuji, not under the bus, but under the road the bus is driving on.

Pure hyperbole on your part.

Since the X20 has a completely new sensor with the same X-Trans technology found in the excellent X-Pro1 and X-E1, I don't expect any issues re: blooming.

The X Trans sensor is just a different color filter array.  That has nothing to do with blooming.  It is the sensor underneath that determines that.

I've owned 2 X10s and have never experienced any QC issues whatsoever. On the contrary, the X10 is one of the best built, most robust compacts I've ever owned, which is exactly why I will buy an X20 straight away without waiting for any reviews at all.

My X10 has had multiple failures besides being built with a defective sensor.  The lens on/off switch is clearly dying.  The focus motor freezes up 20% of the time or so.  The viewfinder seems to be falling apart (internal glass elements sticking as well as the eye relief loosening up).
