I don't have any experience with the LS-10, so I cannot advise other than what I have heard. The LS-10 preamps can be somewhat noisy. The PCM-M10 is incredible even on internal mics only (reported to be using the Primo EM-172 capsules @ only 14db self noise). Here is a good noise floor comparison including both recorders...
and another general sound comparison including both recorders...
You will likely be happy with both, but I can recommend the PCM-M10 with full confidence that you will love it. I too moved up from an h2 to this recorder and I have never been more pleased. If you get it, you will not regret it...

Both are PCM machines, and both do meet minimum specs for EVP work, (assuming the high quality settings are used) so that is not a limiting factor. The final decision would be based on ease of use, features you want, and your applications. Then there is the price consideration and how that ranks in your decision.
But my choice overall, price not withstanding, in this class of recorder would be the Sony.
