... Congratulations.

Try these settings :

Program (P) mode, large (L) size, 4:3, Fine, Raw+Jpeg, DR 200%, ISO 800 (Auto), Astia, Highlight Tone - Medium Soft, Shadow Tone - Medium Soft, Noise Reduction - Medium Low, minus 0.33 EV, Photometry - Average, AF Tracking.

I get clear, colourful, consistent, crisp results in all conditions.

Do not shoot the XF1 at medium (M) size.

Have a look at my recent Chinatown images - XF1 Chinatown

Thank you so much for the input Dave, I am resetting the camera as I write this. I will have a go at it tomorrow if the clouds lift for a while.

I need to read the manual, because this camera has way more settings than my old F300. What do you do about the sharpening, I have it set to Medium soft? but my first batch of jpegs seem to lack in crispness even after a bit of a sharpen in iPhoto.

... I just leave the sharpening set at default. Give my settings a try. It took me a while to arrive at these but I find them excellent.
