Thoughts If X100 or X-E1 Will Improve Upon This Image By X20
Feb 23, 2013

I have been quite pleased with the IQ of the earlier samples of the X20 posted on the Flickr site. However, these files are quite small at 2048 x 1536.

I just recently managed to view one full-sized sample of the X20. The link to the picture is as below.

The size of this original file is at 4000 x 3000 which is a lot larger than the earlier samples(http://www.flickr.com/photos/minami/8494293331/sizes/k/in/set-72157632822934670/ and http://www.flickr.com/photos/minami/8494292937/sizes/k/in/set-72157632822934670/ ). In my view, the IQ of this 4000 x 3000 sample has gone down a notch when compared to the smaller 2048 x 1536 images in areas of clarity, detail and sharpness. The big blue building on the left has slight noise, and the detail has suffered a bit.

The colors are a matter of preference, but I feel the colors in the original image are slightly overdone and unnatural if compared to the colors in the smaller (original) samples.

I would like to seek opinions from X100 and X-E1 owners. I have seen some images from the X100 and X-E1 before producing these similar shots of buildings in similar lighting conditions. I suppose the X100 or X-E1 will produce higher levels of clarity and detail(color is another matter) than the image shown in the first link above? Or is it more to the photographer? I don't know but I have this feeling that the IQ of this image can be improved if it was taken with an X100 or X-E1.
Any thoughts from experienced X100 or X-E1 owners would be greatly appreciated.
