Silly thread.

Even if we don't share the same opinion about the quality of this image , there isn't any need for this. I have looked at the image several times now and my opinions still stand as they are.

Perhaps my expectations are too high or the full-sized 4000 x 3000 image has shown its limits. I have already mentioned earlier - Yes, the IQ is generally good. However, I when I looked more closely at the overall image, I noticed a slight noise on the big blue building on the left. The vertical and horizontal lines on the buiding don't look too sharp. Perhaps this is the best we can get from this image (with the X20), but I can't just stop wonder if the X100 or X-E1 could produce less noise or a sharper or cleaner image on this blue building.

Also, the buildings further back lined up on both sides of the road. I feel the colors are slightly unnatural, though this could be due to the post-processing carried out by the user. When I looked at the EXIF data of this image, I noticed the user has used Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.3 on the image. Link here :
