No, I'm not very happy with the AWB as illustrated in the picture I posted. To be fair, it is a difficult place to shoot. But here's the same place, same lighting (bishop, not priest, though that scarcely matters) with the X10. I did apply a tiny bit of correction in the GIMP with this one -- but the one I posted previously did not want to bend easily to correction, so it seems as if the AWB has been rejiggered some way. The X10 picture:

Not especially sharp, but that's my fault.

I know that X10 has much better indoor AWB, I noticed the awful artificial light AWB of X20 in pre-production cameras, and I voiced my concern on the forum (and was vilified for that by the early enthusiastic crowd, who are mostly gone now). I noticed the same issue with HS50, and there are some reports X100s AWB has shifted the same way, so it could be the corporate decision for some strange reason. Strangely enough, X-S1 has very good artificial light AWB, so it can be done.
