Re: If you processed the XE-1 image via Lightroom you reduced the resolution

It isn't a fair comparison of the camera, if you used LR to process the photos.. LR is still lagging on good X-Trans sensor support. So a fair comparison is to use the out-of-camera JPEG vs LR processed Leica (I am assuming LR does a good job on the Leica). Or maybe Silkypix. Just to compare cameras.

Hopefully Lightroom is upgraded with decent X-Trans support soon. CaptureOne has been fixed up already.

I agree that there're too many variables in the air for this to be a particularly useful comparison, but just to be clear: the X-E1 photo was an out-of-camera JPEG that was modified in Lightroom. Lightroom's X-Trans issues are completely irrelevant in the context of JPEGs, indeed Lightroom can get a lot of out of the X-E1's particularly good JPEGs.
