This phenomena has been shown in great detail, over and over and over again. The X-E2 shows sledgehammer amounts of noise at higher ISO values which is dramatically destructive to skin.

You can continue to deny it exists, or do basic research here and find it for yourself. I dont even care about this issue and still have managed to see a half dozen examples in various threads here.

I'm not going to disagree with you but I've still not seen any good examples of this so if it has been shown "in detail, over and over again" I must have missed it.

Granted, it has been talked about in great detail.

There was a fantastic image shot by someone here who overlayed an X-E2 shot on top of an X-E1. The shot was of someone's hand and it showed clear as day the sledgehammer noise reduction that the X-E2 uses at very high ISO values.

One look at this single image and that is all that you need to know.

I wish I bookmarked that image.

Yes, I've seen that.

Now let's see some properly exposed portraits with white balance properly set.

I'm not denying that the X-E2/X-T1 may use a more heavy handed noise reduction at ISO 6400 and above but I still haven't seen real life portraits that show "waxy" skin tones.

Heard a lot about them but would like to see real life examples from a photographer.

I don't understand what you are expecting to see. Do you not know the difference between test shots and photography? The example images were shot using the same exposure and they are perfectly suitable for showing the different noise handling of the two cameras. The artistic value of the images is completely irrelevant. Do you think the noise reduction algorithm will magically change if the camera is held by an artist?
