Re: which has better IQ
In reply to usinare, Apr 13, 2012

From the pixel peeing I have done on this website I think the XP1. Check for yourself - look very closely (@ 100%) at the sample images of people published here. The XP1 looks better to me.

Theoretically the XP1 could have a higher performance as 16MP without a moire filter should achieve a higher resolution that 22MP with a moire filter. Bear in mind the purpose of the moire filter is to blur incoming light. Of course, whether this is in fact achieved is dependent on implementation details. However, the lack of moire filter could be indirectly responsible for better IQ in another way - since light is not being blured edges do not need to be recovered in software, hence the XP1 can "leave alone" more and get a much more film like feel than anything else I have access to.

My opinion of course.
