Summary: Carrying the x-10 has been a real plus. The camera works well, focuses fast and I can count on a very good exposure over and over. The EXR sensor is as good as they get, coupled with the sharp and fast lens the camera performs extremely well.
The in camera flash works well and provides good coverage, having some control of the output comes in handy and as a fill it works well in daylight.
The macro setting works with ease, but the super macro is very touchy and needs improvement.
I really like the look and feel of the x-10. It's retro range finder looks and sturdy materials give it a confident feel and the manual power lens zoom works with ease. The x-10 offers enough manual controls to really feel like your in charge of the output and not at the mercy of a point and shoot.
It was in the steep part of the price range for models that do similar things and over all the camera delivers on all sides- except for the dumb way the camera arrives at high ISO settings- that was a let down. Not to mention going to market with the blooming issue not addressed. Is that really a sensor issue? In my experience with the camera, I have to shoot specifically to make that to happen. It very rarely comes up with day-to-day shooting. It's there if go shooting for it. Overall I'd give the camera a 3.75 out of 5.
