Re: X-e1 - doubt about sharpness

And one more thing, this was photographed with the 35mm f/1.4 lens, which is an excellent lens, but might perform differently than the Pentax 50mm f/2.8 Macro at a close focus like this. Plus, you have to get even closer with the 35mm to get the same framing as with the 50mm, so you are in a region where the 35mm might not be performing its best.

Here is my review of the Fuji 35mm f/1.4 lens though (it is the highest LW/PH lens I have tested, but I think that is due to lack of AA filter), and possible over sharpening by Lightroom.  I need to test it with a JPEG from camera too.


That being said, the XTrans is not perfect of course, there are tradeoffs, but sensor sharpness is not a reason to avoid XTrans.  A valid reason might be focusing concerns, Adobe RAW file handling concerns, etc.
