Update: AS we suspected yesterday, Fujifilm has gone official with the X10 but remains quiet about the all important detail of pricing. The X10 will be coming to stores in November and we'll keep you informed regarding pricing as we hear it.
Details of the X10 are as had been reported below with the X10 building on the success of the X100 with its ultra-fast /2-2.8, 28-112mm manual zoom lens with its proprietary Electron Beam Coating that promises "excellent image quality, even at the edge of the frame."
Let us know in the comments whether you this this retro-styled compact will offer enough features for you or if you'd rather shell out the extra money for the X100.

New details and images of the latest camera from Fujifilm have been leaked confirming that the camera will be called the Fujifilm X10.
The baby brother of the retro-styled Fujifilm X100, the X10 has been rumoured to be coming for some time now, with details being leaked bit by bit. Launch is expected very soon and we expect the new camera to be roughly half the price of the X100.
The latest images look like product shots from the manufacturer themselves and shows that the X10 will continue the trend of using physical buttons and dials, seen on the X100. These will let you control a range of features such as aperture and shutter speeds.
The X10 will have a Fujinon Manual 4x optical zoom lens, a 12 megapixel CMOS sensor and, as you can see from the pictures, it will have an optical viewfinder, though we don’t expect it to be the hybrid electronic/optical one seen in its bigger brother.
The X10 has a small 2.8in 460,000 dot LCD screen and unlike the X100, will be able to shoot full HD video. There is also going to be a 360-degree motion panorama feature included.
We continue to wait for Fujifilm to launch the X10 officially (which we hear could be as soon as this week) but for now we’ll have to make do with these new images to whet our appetite even further.
