The cameras are nowhere near the same megapixels - the SD-1 has 30 bayer equivalent megapixels while the X-E1 is rolling with a mere 16. While Fuji has done a great job with the unique sensor design and decent lens, it just is not close and the trees really show it.

The fuji is not "rolling with a mere 16"- Fuji is not using a Bayer sensor, nor do they have an AA filter.

The image is a great example illustrating how bayer images come to you already up-sampled on final output.
