              Hi Edhawco, thanks for holding us to high standards :)

              The site measures sensor sizes in mm, and then puts a "label" on them like 1/1.7", looks like we're missing the appropriate label for this size.   Regarding wide angle, you're right, however, our view here though is that if you want wide angle, then one of them has more than the other.  Not everyone wants a small camera either, we still think its useful to tell you which one is smaller :)  

              Snapsort's true resolution is calculated as the maximum theoretical resolution a sensor could capture given its size and actual resolution, so technically its not ignoring the sensor size, quite the opposite :)

              This X100 vs. X10 article contains a number of mistakes.

              The biggest mistake is saying that the X10 has a 1/1.7 sensor. NOT TRUE. The sensor is 2/3, which is 6.6x8.8mm (as indicated here) but it is NOT 1/1.7, which would be a 5.7x7.6mm sensor. Not a huge difference, but it is enough to make it bigger than a 1/1.7.

              Also, you say the X10 has "better" wide angle, which is a silly thing to say. It has a *wider* wide angle, but wider isn't *necessarily* better. It's silly to put a quality judgement on wideness. That's a neutral thing. Different people prefer different levels of wideness. Some people hate wide angle. Some people want as wide as possible.

              Then there's the part about resolution. You say the X10 has "Higher true resolution: 12 MP vs 11 MP. Capture around 10% more detail in your photos." This ignores the fact that the X100 has a significantly bigger sensor, and bigger sensors are better at capturing detail. You get more detail out of 11MP on a large sensor than 12MP on a small sensor. While you could argue that by "resolution" you mean "pixel count," by invoking "detail" you're just plain wrong.

              Just sayin'  :-)
