In X100 the microlens are specially designed to shift a bit for edge areas so to receive light better, and boost image quality for edges. but seems in X100s there is no mention at all -- or I missed something?

I don't see any mention of microlens shift, but the X100S brochure does say:
"Also, efforts made toward optimizing the microlens resulted in more than 30% noise reduction(*3) and nearly double(*2) the speed of previous models, as well as 130% to 140% expansion of dynamic range, compared to its predecessors."

thanks Stephen. but that sentence is for X20 -- though similar sentence for X100s too:

"we decided to optimize the structure of the collection optical system, including the distribution of phase detection pixels and microlenses, to greatly increase acceptance function. "
