X100s or X20?

I have an aging, but capable Nikon D40 with a nice set of lenses that I use primarily for sports photography (my daughter's soccer games, etc)-and some portrait shots.

My Canon S110 does well as take anywhere, pocket camera.

I'm looking for a high quality compact camera specifically for indoor and low-light photography.

The reviews of the X100s are outstanding--and it seems like the perfect camera for indoor, low light, carrying light, family photos, etc.. However, it is kind of pricey. The X20, while not quite as wonderful (based on reviews) is much affordable--and close to the budget I had in mind,

However, I don't want to spend less only to be disappointed. (As I was recently trying to use both the D40 and S110 at my daughter's birthday party inside a skating rink. All kinds of crazy lighting. Fast moving kids. Neither camera-nor the photographer--did a very good job!.)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
