Funny that DPR points out the ISO discrepancy for the X-Pro1, but not for that very popular modern camera, the Olympus OMD. The OMD's "fudging" is documented at DxOMark.

It really seems to me as though there is no standard.

At least olymous didn't pretend on surpassing ff high iso performance and resolution

Do you have evidence that Fuji did that? Please point to a Fuji release that made the statement. I am not saying they didn't, but it is a strong claim against the company that should be backed up with proof, not just thrown out there to hang.

Or was it just reviewers who did that?

"Exceptional color rendition and image resolution
Fujifilm’s advanced X-Trans CMOS sensor is capable of delivering resolution that is superior to other APS-C sensors, and equal to even some full frame sensors found in popular DSLR cameras."

Not "surpassing", but "equal to". Still a big claim.

There is nothing there about ISO. Only resolution. And with a 16mp X-Trans without an AA filter I would have been even more emphatic and said "Resolution better then many FF sensors".

Better than some 12mp? Resolution isn't the strength of X-Trans and is lower than one of bayer of the same sensor density.
