There is a lot of angst in this forum aimed at people who say anything negative about Fuji, which is crazy as we all share 2 things in common. A love of photography and a love of Fuji cameras.

I think your latest examples show the issue a bit clearer. Many have agreed that the newer Fuji models are applying heavier NR to jpegs. If you don't like the results of the in-camera renderings, you can always shoot raw. I think you should try bigpigbig's suggestion of testing the different NR settings. I would be interested in the results.

I don't think the "angst" had anything to with the 2 issues you are asking about. The problem is some of the unfounded claims you have made in this thread, like:

at all ISO ranges Fuji tries to soften skin and does not give the option to disable this feature

I am not sure how you reached this conclusion, but I haven't seen any examples of this at lower ISO settings. Can you elaborate? Can you post examples? Why do you keep calling it a feature?

Definitely NR happening in RAW, no doubt.

How are you so sure that Fuji is applying NR to raw files? Do you have any proof?...or is this more of a conspiracy theory type thing?

If you stick to the real issues, I would agree that the OOC NR is too heavy for my tastes. But some of your other claims seem a bit off kilter.
