I also tested one a month ago or so and wasn't that impressed. Decided to go with a nex5n and lenses and have been very happy. Nice pics to start this thread though.
Where you expecting a fixed lens, small sensor, high end compact, aka a P&S, to really rival an APS-C interchangeable lenses camera system though ?
I don't really understand peoples comments of not being impressed, unless their had unrealistic expectations. Having owned the S100, LX5, XZ1, G12 and darn near every other compact on the market, I'd say the X10 has hands down the best overall IQ
Does it match APS-C or even m4/3 ? No, but those cameras are in a different class. No point and shoot out there is going to rival them.
Not that the X10 is right for everyone, and no doubt a majority here would have higher demands/needs, but X10 is sill a very impressive step in the right direction for the compact market.
Perfect ? Not hardly, but manual zoom, fast lens, usable viewfinder, direct controls etc are all really good steps in the right direction..
