No first-hand knowledge, but the F20 is modular and the frame fits all cushion sizes. Not likely to be any compatibility. I've been using Resmed masks for a lot of years and have never seen compatibility when they are re-designed: Swift NT, Swift FX, Airfit 10.

From the product page it looks like nothing will be interchangeable with the F10. The F20 headgear uses magnets embedded in the mask frame to connect to magnets in the headgear. (On paper, this looks like an awesome idea; hopefully it works in practice too.) Also, in the F20, both the cushion and the frame are different from from the F10. The cushion on the F20 has a larger hole to accommodate a completely different quick-disconnect. On the F10, the exhaust holes are in the cushion; in the F20, they are in the quick-disconnect.

I'm looking forward to trying out the F20. It looks like the cushion has more support around the nose. Also, the headgear looks more comfortable and less likely to have the sharp edges around the back, as seen in the F10.

There's a video here to see it in action:

I would like to know if the F10 cushion fits the F20 frame. The F10 cushion is superior on the bridge of the nose although I cannot wear the F20 due to the rigid plastic on the nose bridge I do like the magnetic clips on frame. I'm going to research the frame size to see it the F20 frame will accommodate the F10 cushion. That would be the best of both worlds.

I have both of these now and the 2 cushions are definitely not interchangeable.  There are no shared parts.  It's unfortunate that the F20's cushion doesn't fit you because I think that's the best feature.  Also, the F20 is a bit larger than the F10 and sits higher up (more toward my forehead) than the F10.  It has a lot more room for compression and the material seems more springy and pliable.  At first I thought the magnetic clips would be cool.  Now I see them as more of a marketing gimmick.  They aren't any easier to use than the F10 with the looped headgear fitting over a plastic post.  Plus, because they are magnetic, there's no alternative headgear.  We're stuck with the ResMed headgear with it's sharp edges.
