No it was not, it "arrived" with the X100s and the X-E2 and now also present in the X-T1 (perhaps even more:

according the last couple posts in this thread:

http://www.fujix-forum.com/index.php/topic/18475-x100-owner-disppointed-with-x100s-says-good-bye/page-2

It's related to the EXR II. The X-Pro1 and the X-E1 had the EXR Pro processor.

Well, as I said, the presence of the overdone noise reduction in JPEG's produced by the original X-Pro1 and X-E1 was reported to me by numerous professional photographers who continue to use the same cameras on a daily basis quite successfully. For the life of me I can't come up with a single reason why these people would lie to me.

But since you seem to know so much about it, why don't you explain to me what the problem is, and just what the EXR-2 does to introduce the phenomenon into the JPEG's it produces. I don't want generalizations; I'd like to have specifics.

Tell me what the Fuji engineers changed that caused the problem to begin. If you can document the date when that problem was first introduced into the EXR-2, that would be good.

Dear Wyldberi, I am not an engineer, but if you do not know the history of Fuji X sensor and processors and its relation ship you can catch up on it here:

You can also follow the discussion on this thread (why not start with Jin Radcliffe's excellent summary at the end):

There's enough material for an entire conference on this theme
