Normal Sudoku rules apply. Each row, column, and 3x3 box contains each number from 1 to 9 exactly once.
All orthogonally adjacent cells with the sum of 5 are marked with a V, and with the sum of 10 are marked with an X. This is also a negative constraint (where there is no V or X between the cells, the sum of the 2 cells is not 5 or 10)!
Killer Sudoku rules apply. The sum of all numbers in a cage (marked with dashed lines) must match the small number printed in its corner. No number appears more than once in a cage.
The puzzle is also available online.

Very nice and very hard. I liked it!

I can see the logic with the cages after I'd finished it, but not during the solve. Retracing and changing all the X's and V's to make it fit afterwards wasn't particularly fun for me, but I might just be too frustrated for spending too much time on it.

@Ragna Don't be sorry, I admit, it's not easy, but you don't have to use bifurcation, to solve it, I promise.

Sorry, I cannot find the intrance. So I have T&E, many bifurcations. Not very amusing. Not smooth.
And as I see, only 5 persons could solve it since a week. I'll give up. Sorry :-(
