The reason you think there is a difference is probably the amount of JPEG processing that goes into the Fuji JPEGS - this has nothing to do with the sensor at all. I'd go so far as to say I doubt you could tell which were shot on m43 and which were shot with Fuji X-Trans if such a test were provided.

Ah yes, the classic "you couldn't tell the difference" argument. In which case we should all be shooting with $100 compacts or smart phones. The best APS-C sensors still outperform m43. And APS-C still has a 2/3-stop DOF advantage. The differences may be marginal, but they're there. The point isn't that every photograph looks better with APS-C. Duh, with a static subject and good light there are very few differences between ANY sensors. But there are certainly situations in which APS-C will outperform m43 because it is marginally better.  There are no situations in which an m43 sensor will outperform APS-C. That's the point people are making.
