Re: I hope these aren't truly representative of the XE1...

What did they do to these images? They look awful!

They are indoors, and clearly in some kind of conference room, which likely means under some sort of artificial lighting. For softness, I don't think it's so much an issue of softness simply choosing a terrible subject for a test photo, i.e. a deli platter with few hard edges shot at an oblique angle.

It did make me laugh though to see a Polish review site taking test photos of... salami!

Poor choice of subject, IMHO. That said, if you download the last image shot at 18mm @ f2.8, the lens doesn't seem too bad wide open.
