There is no way the current XE1 sensor can resolve fine detail like that. Look at the trees in the background you can see sharply defined individual branches.

I love my XE1 but if I took a shot of that same scene those branches would not be resolved at all.

Rumour is a Nikon compact mirrorless is coming soon. But that could be later.

Greg.

Agree with that, ist impresive! But have you checked the lens that is used in this sample? Nikkor 70-200mm f/4... i wonder if a Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6 is able to preserve same details and overall IQ. I doubt. Using huge end expensive lenses in a DX body its not a bad thing, juts dont fit to enerybody's needs.
