I hesitate buying the x-e1, I wouldn't if I was certain to obtain an excellent IQ. Despite all the enthusiastic critics, I am surprised to see that some photos are non sharp..

Have a look at the studio scene, jpeg or raw whatever and compare it with Pentax K-30 or Nex, the results are less sharp (look at the card for instance...). Is there any reasons ?

The card is out of focus, check the focus on the XE1 and you will see it is front-focused from the other cameras in the comparison.

I have seen also critics for some photos on a review, and it was not so sharp..

Can you help me decide ???



Sharpness is not one of the issues with the XE1.
