An X-E1 photo (xtrans1) and 2 X-M1 photos (xtrans2) - Can you tell which is which?

One bit of "common wisdom" that been echoed across this forum is that Xtrans1 JPEG colors were superior to Xtrans2. So I shot the same scene 3 times, once with the X-E1 and twice with the X-M1. The primary color is brown, which I think is a difficult color to reproduce naturally.

I was just curious how many of you could pick the X-E1 photo. Is it example1, example2, or example3? All shots are with Provia film simulation and the 23mm lens set to F1.8, NR-2, and DR Auto. The two X-M1 shots differ only in the Shadow setting -- on one it is 0 and the other it is -1.

No pp except that I resized them all to 70% in Irfanview.

I am interested not only in which you think is the E1 shot, but why.  Also, do you see the treatment of color as very different on the three shots?




Any takers?
