Waxy faces?
3 months ago

Hello,

From the DPR review of XE-2:

"Our biggest concern about the X-E2 is its JPEG rendering of skin tones, which can tend towards the disconcertingly wax-like. This is a great shame in a camera that has a JPEG engine that we otherwise really like. Still more disappointingly, you can't completely eliminate the effect without reverting to processing the Raw files off-camera - meaning you can't make full use of the camera's JPEG engine or Wi-Fi capabilities."

Can any owners post some pics what it looks like in real typical pictures.   Does the waxy look also affect landscapes scenics?

Has it been fixed in X100s and/or XT-1?

The reason I ask is because I am considering moving from Panasonic MFT to Fuji X series for travel kit.  Want benefits of APS-C IQ.  I shoot mostly Jpeg on holiday.

Thanks
