Well...

...I'm just rendering an opinion here.  Some of the finest images I've ever taken over the past 2.5 decades have been with cameras who may have received less than favorable reviews with regards to AF or other factors.  In the case of reviews, it is often the case (IMO) that reviewers tend to focus their own individual priorities on a given camera model - i.e. whether that be for video or still photography features.

It all depends on what your priorities are here.  Are you more of a still photography photographer, or are you more video oriented?  Are you more of a general photography or a speed (sports, etc) oriented person?  The answers to these will set you in the right direction for the camera (at a given price-point) that may suit your needs.

As I mentioned earlier, if the XF10 had IS, I would have gotten it already because I'm (still) looking for the ideal street camera.  The only model on the market today that has IS is the Ricoh GR III.  I love how the color renderings look that are coming from that GR III.  But damnnnnnnn, $900 for that little camera and the accessories are ridiculously priced.  I'll just have to wait and see if I wind up getting that in the future.
