Simple Question: 16MP X-E1/X-Pro1 X-Trans vs. 24MP D600 - IQ ONLY

Base ISO, high ISO, noise, detail, acuity, macro and micro contrast, lens at close/far focus, DR, etc.

Irrelevant: Size, cost, sensor size, lens size, battery longevity, handling, rear screen, camera "features", sync speed and on and on and on - all irrelevant.

Irrelevant: OOC JPEG is completely irrelevant (read Ming Thein on the irrelevance of this "feature"). Loving attention to raw processing only using whatever software performs "best" (NOT most "convenient" or popular software) for each camera.

Relevant: Lens quality IS relevant. Duh. Real world IQ is an equation of lenses + sensor. Use best primes only as basis for comparison.

How does the IQ under different common test scenarios and test criteria compare between these two camera system options? Not just "better or worse." I'm looking for studious, detailed, carefully controlled and measured comparisons.

Any pointers out there to serious folks out there who have spent the time to make a serious comparison?

Thanks in advance!
