Agreed on the bigger sensor, preferably one-inch. The body doesn't necessarily need to be significantly larger - see m43 snappers like the E-PL5 or APS-C cameras like the NEX series. However the lens for a one-inch sensor would be somewhat larger than that on the X10/X10 if it'd keep the current specs - 28-112mm (FF equiv)/f2-2.8. For me that lens is just perfect as it is, an extended zoom range or faster openings would quickly make it too large for a 'compact' camera. Just let me add that I have something of a gut feeling that the X30 will come with an EVF instead of the current OVF; a deciding feature that would set it even further apart from Sony's soap boxes and other high-end compacts. The modules get cheaper, smaller and better with each generation, we'll get 100% coverage instead of the current 85%, no more parallax errors and corners covered by an extended lens and/or hoods. An EVF doesn't need more space than the current OVF, just some more juice so it's about time to give that camera a decent, ergonomic grip with enough space to hold a bigger battery. Go Fuji !

I like the way you think...larger sensor , bigger battery and EVF with remaing specs same as the X20! Part of me wishes for a larger than 1"sensor design but agree that size would become overwhelming...but what if it had a Canon G1X size sensor (X-Trans of course). I'd settle for f2.0-4.0 if it were possible -or- even 24-85mm equiv. @ f2.0-2.8 if the trade-off wasensors significantly larger sensor.

on the ultimate wish list, just add - weather sealed, interval shooting, wifi (better app please for remote function, in-camera preview and batch transferring). And why is Pentax/Ricoh the only maker using the TAV mode...one of the (many) reasons I ordered a Ricoh GR...

Actually so called one-inch sensors like the RX100 or Nikon 1s measure 13,2 x 8,8 mm (3:2), not quite one inch. The sensor in Canon's G1X measures 19 x 14mm - it's ~2.3 times larger.
