Context is everything I guess. From the context of my beginnings in photography as a kid in the late '60's and early '70s, damn near everything we use is "digital lazyness"! Auto focus, aperture and shutter priority modes, burst mode, having a light meter built right INTO the camera! And being able to change ASA (ISO) for any given shot was unheard of. Once per roll at the maximum and if you shot a lot and bought film in bulk, it could be a lot closer to never... And zoom lenses - what the hell were THOSE??? So we all choose which of these lazinesses we indulge in. I've never really gotten used to "seeing" with zoom lenses, so the X10 is a modern day abomination where my fixed lens Nikon A is a high-minded throwback to the good days of yore.
Auto ISO, OTOH, is a tool that is just now coming into it's own in the last few years as sensors have gotten good enough to trust them at very high ISO sensitivities. I personally love it when implemented well and provides me the tools to have it do exactly what I'd do if controlling it myself. And there are plenty of poor implementations of it around as well. The Nikon, the Fuji XE2, various Samsungs, no doubt several others, have EXCELLENT logic controlling (and letting the shooter control) ISO. A few others are close but fall critically short in one area or another. The X10 just didn't quite have the range for me to want to use it and didn't have the logic to set it the way I'd want to if the range was there.
So, we each choose the modern conveniences we like and tend to think of the others as the tools of the devil... For me, zoom lenses are tools of the devil and a good auto-ISO implementation is singing with the angels. You mileage obviously varies.... It's all good. But that's just one of the reasons I don't shoot with an X10 anymore. Among zooming compacts, though, it was one of my favorites, along with the Panasonic LX7, which is probably my all time favorite. But I don't own any of them anymore because I just didn't shoot with 'em anymore...
