The X10 IMHO requires a bi of work to get the best out of it. if you're willing to put in the time it can be very rewarding. I'm just skimming the surface of what it can do so I thought why not post and invite other folks working with their X10's to do the same? So here goes...
All shot at MF, Aperture Priority, -1/3 Exposure Comp, Sharpness +1, NR +1, Highlight Tone -1, Auto1600, DR100
I am very pleased with the color.

Kevin: Any processing other than that done in camera? My habit is to turn down NR, sharpening, etc., and do it in post-processing, but if the X-10 is doing this well in camera, I might have to rethink my methods for this particular machine.

The only post processing I did was a bit of cropping and added some vignetting in LR. Sharpness, NR etc. are all SOOC. For BW I use Silver Efex Pro 2.

I hadn't even discovered this thread when I took this, but figured I'd put it up with shooting information anyway. LF, 200iso 200%DR, sharpness, NR, etc. all set to 0, auto white balance. A bit of additional sharpening and noise reduction done in Lightroom,, black and white conversion done in B&W Effects.
I'm thrilled with this camera, and quite impressed with it.

I really like the camera quite a bit. I am finding myself constantly surprised at how well the images turn out.

Here's another from the camera jpeg at LF iso 200 and 200%DR, with sharpness, color, DR,etc. all at 0. I adjusted the color 2 points in photoshop and did a very slight (.4) highpass overlay sharpening. And I raised the shadows slightly in in the levels. This still looks good at 3x large in SmugMug, where clicking on the embedded photo leads. Once you click through the first image the photo has a roll over menu on the right that allows you to view a various sizes. Not exactly intuitive, but it works.

Keep 'em coming Kevin! Glad to see you found something new to play with that's inspiring you again.

I'm really enjoying it and I guess that's half the battle.
