I also have the Sony X100, which has slightly better native image quality, but is not nearly as intuitive a camera or nearly as fun to shoot as the X20.

After my first experience with the X20, I reduced NR to -2 and raised sharpness to +1.  I have no problem with auto WB and everything looks fine so far.  I let the camera pick the af point in single, but if I do not like what it picks, I move the camera and this seems to be best for accuracy.

The above image shows awful noise noise at ISO320. Much of the image does look out of focus, but that does explain the noise and the foreground area in the 100% crop below does look in focus - just terribly noisy:

I agree. At pixel-level, the in-camera sharpening messes up the otherwise good shot. While this is not uncommon to small sensor cams, the JPEG render here is quite lower than average.
