Thanks for the comparison.

I think that you have correctly identified the X100s' lens as an aspect of this series of cameras that might need updating in the next round.  I compared the X100, X100s and NEX-6/Zeiss 24mm.  I knew that the Zeiss/NEX-7 would best the X100s at low ISO, but was surprised that the NEX-6, with the same sensor in Bayer form and mild AA filter, could match and maybe even surpass the X100s at lower ISO.  I only shot at F/4.0 given that we know that the Fuji is a bit soft wide open.  I could only assume that the Fuji lens was a limiting factor.  Of course, better optics could come at a price, such as larger form factor.  The NEX/Zeiss combination feels more like a Contax Aria with a 50mm Sonnar.
