Back to the Fuji, I did a comparison shot between my SD1 and my X-E1 and found the image quality of the SD1 to be superior. So much for measurements! It must be the microcontrast and lack of interpolation that makes the SD1 sensor look so much better.

Must be. A pity about DPR's test image for SD1M, one wonders what lens they used. It was so poor I couldn't even be bothered to check the EXIF. Anyway I had to have look at Xpro1 test image (same sensor as X-E1) just out of curiosity:
SD1M:
Someone will say I should have re-sampled the Fuji image down to be the same as the Sigma, but it's 1:30 am and I ain't going to bother right now. If I did, the Fuji would come out slightly ahead, IMHO.

Smooth!

Xpro-1:

Check that CA only 14% off-center!
