    Fujifilm's announcement of X10 later X20 is a great initiative for low-budget photographers like who can't afford to buy bag of great lenses and big sensor cameras:).I have been checking the photos taken with X10 in flickr for couple of months to know the range of that camera,as X20 is better than it then i can rely on X20 also.Night shots and natural lights are beautifully responded with X10 but i doubt about the portraits with greater DOF except 1cm super macro shots.Can anyone tell me that fujinon F2.0-F2.8 lenses are made in this style to create shallower depth of field compared with canon or nikkor lenses or there is any other techniques to get greater DOF with X10/X20?

    It's possible, but only on the macro and telephoto ends... and you still wouldn't be getting the same kind of subject isolation as even a APS-C sized sensor. These are from shooting at the 112mm equivalent, at f2.8. You would be able to achieve even shallower DOF by cropping in tighter (say, a headshot).
