There's a few issues though - the size of the sensor and the file types

The X10 has a 1/2.3" sensor - in otherwords, a tiny pin-head variety.  And the specs don't yet show if it will have RAW capabilities (which would definitely offset the sensor size).  If it just has JPG capabilities (and no RAW), then this X10 will be relegated to the vast heap of small P&S cameras.  We've all seen the aggressive JPG compression practices of Olympus with many oftheir past P&S models - so RAW on a model like this would really be nice.  But I've seen nothing yet (off of 4/3 rumors) about file types.

Now, if it has RAW, then one must compare it to the likes of the Canon S series.  I have the S100 and that baby shines in more ways than one.  It would be nice for Oly to have something as small and as capable.
