X100s really disappointing image. Is this normal?

... check the noise-reduction setting.  For a shot taken at ISO800 the pale blue sky on your pic is suspiciously noise-free, which suggests that the camera is applying noise reduction at the jpeg conversion stage.  That will always soften and smear fine detail.  Turn it down and see what happens.

You can do a much better job of noise reduction using external software rather than relying on the limited abilities of the camera's processor and software and I'd strongly recommend this if you want to shoot at high ISOs regularly.

Best wishes
