How does the LX5 compare with the X10?

LX5 is a great camera, and rivals with the S95 back then (well, it wasn't that long ago, but still...) These two cameras each have their strengths, though I do recall that some people complain about the bigger lens of the LX5 making it too big to fit into the shirt pocket.

As for comparing the LX5 with X10, I would suspect that Fuji's product probably capitalizes on the generation difference between it and the LX5. :D (Though I don't think it's fair to compare the S95/LX5 with the X10, since the X10 is more of the level of advanced compact - like G12 and so. Panasonic doesn't have something in that category - maybe GF3, but that's EVIL, not a compact).

Good point! Though I am curious what the LX5 successor will be like which should be out later this year.  Hopefully smaller than the G1X and a faster lens along the current model.

The image of the fireworks really shows the X10 issue with white orbs.  Apparently, they have not been able to fix it, and are saying that they meet specs.

It is much worse than the black dots that the 5D MK II had, and once you look and see them, you might be pretty frustrated.

I've had an X10 since December, and to be honest, I rarely take it anywhere with me.  I'm so used to shooting with an SLR that using a compact camera feels so 'disengaged' and the controls feel so small and fiddly.  The image quality is okay I suppose, but certainly no match for my nearly 5-year-old EOS 40D.

As a fashion accessory, the X10 is a real winner though... It looks awesome.  :)

It's not pocketable like the S100 is, which is a good reason to think twice before buying one.  In fact, when housed in its leather case, it's not much smaller than my 40D with 50mm 1.8 lens on.
5D Mark III, 40D, 1V.  Bunch of strobes, lenses and other bits.
They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.
