The Fujifilm has a 35mm equivalent range of 28mm - 112mm which can be doubled using the intelligent digital zoom.
I don't have much experience with compact digital cameras but the x10 is a totally different beast to any I've ever used in the past. The image quality from such a small camera is incredible, I'm not going to get carried away and pretend it can be used for professional work, but I'm sitting here looking at a 12x8 print and it looks really good. Fuji have got to be commended here, a really nice zoom lens and a great wee sensor. By the way, this next photograph was shot at iso 3200! On a compact camera!!!!!
The next three shots are taken using the intelligent digital zoom feature, 223mm equivalent, while held above my head using the rear lcd to compose, wouldn't be so easy with a 5d and 70-200!
Here are a few more shots from the x10, if you're in the market for a compact camera you should take a serious look at the fujifilm X10.
