Fuji X-E2 image problems
Nov 10, 2013

Testing my X-E2 this weekend, and I have a couple of issues.

1) JPEGs overall soften human skin far too much, this is reported to be an issue with the X100s so it could possibly be due to face detection, but even on NR -2 it is too much - everyone looks like they have been retouched. However the real issue comes at ISO 6400 which just obliterates all detail - this must be a bug because it is incredibly unsightly. Non-people photos are fine.

2) An even bigger issue, though perhaps not Fujis fault - Lightroom 5.3 (final beta) is showing some very bad magenta shadows on a LOT of photos - again mainly faces for some reason.

Attached a 100% crop showing this on a forehead

And again in another photo - look at the eyes and nose.

3) Raw files of people all tend to boost saturation in the eyes and lips which is odd, everyone looks like they have lipstick on.

It is a shame because the camera is good, and focus is perfectly fine now; but these are big issues. I really do not know whether to return it or not...
