After struggling with issues with my D-Lux 5 since February, I finally threw in the towel and returned the second one and replaced it with the X10. The Leica took beautiful images (except for the black blobs in the pictures after being repaired) but I couldn't learn to "get over" the LCD smearing issues after the second camera. The new X10 arrived today at work and after unpacking it I was pleasantly surprised on the quality of construction and the comfortable fit it had in my hands. Tonight I'll spend a few hours learning the menu and functions and this weekend I'll begin shooting some images. Hopefully I'll even be able to post some May Challenge pics before the deadline of next Thursday. :biggrin:

Congrats John,

I have the X10 as my sole digital and I've yet to be disappointed - especially armed with a tiny Bip (soft release) and Gordy strap ;)

No orbs yet but she's getting a sensor replacement as soon as the newbies hit our Aussie shores.

Thanks Mark, so far I've added the GGS Optical Glass LCD Screen Protector and the light brown leather case. I haven't decided yet whether or not I'm going to stick to the neck strap or go back to the the wrist strap. So far I'm really impressed with the picture quality and the ease of use of the menu functions and it feels just soooo nice in my hands. Oh and the OVF is impressive even though it doesn't show any info with the clarity and brightness.

Welcome to the X10 club! It is such an amazing little camera, which has rekindled my passion for photography. It certainly demands attention especially with accessories. So far I have a glass screen protector, a leather case and a Gariz lens cap retainer. Next will be a cable release, a soft release, maybe a thumbs up.....
Not sure what to do about the sensor replacement as yet, as I haven't experienced the orbs first hand.
Enjoy your new toy.

Cheers

Hello John, congrats on your new gear, the X10. I think it's a nice retro alike little camera. Oh yes, I prefer cocktail hour too. (great shot) Which cameras did you have before, a Pan G1 maybe?

Congrats on your X10 purchase. I have had mine for a few months now and I have to admit it took me a little while to fall in love with it. It was my first small-sensored camera in many years and I think I had to readjust from my "full frame sensor, shallow DOF" mindset to really appreciate what the X10 can do. But lately (and mainly thanks to the May Prompts Challenge) I feel like I've really bonded with the X10. It was photos like this that reminded me why I chose it in the first place:

It really is a great camera and I now carry it with me everyday.

Which size/model of GGS screen protector? Thanks.

Jules these are top shelf! Gotta say you got ripped off though...most folks got free white orbs with their X10....and I would have thought shot #1 should have showed them.

Gives me faith.

Again fabulous work and the atmosphere of #1 makes it a personal fave.

I got the GGS Optical Glass LCD Screen Protector 3" from Amazon. The 3" worked perfectly even though the screen is 2.8" and it's so much clearer than the stick on plastic one I had on the D-Lux 5.
Thanks, John. I read that the 2.8" wasn't the correct aspect ratio, so the 3" is the right choice. I've used GGS on other cameras and they're excellent.

Lol... tomorrow Luke. =) I've got my grand daughter for the day to go to a picnic, I should be able to get something to show.
Fail on my part with no pictures taken. I've spent the day making sand pies, climbing jungle jims, playing restaurant, and going for a walk. I'm an exhausted but happy grandpa with no pics but pockets full of sand and tomorrow's another day...:yahoo:
