Fuji X-E1 vs Nex-6 (Image quality)

I have downloaded the raw files from DPreview. The ones with ISO 200. I don't understand why people say the Fujifilm X-E1 has the better Image Quality. From what I observed, the NEX-6 files are much sharper (I am using Lightroom 4.4). I am in the process of deciding between buying a NEX-6 or a Fuji X-E1. I have to admit that the fact that the 35mm is a little faster is appealing. But the NEX-6 seems to have better IQ and is much cheaper (like $250 less). I have to admit that the high ISO files are better on the Fuji side tho.

Can anyone point out to me why people tell me why the Fujifilm would have the better IQ ?

Thanks guys !

The NEX-6 is a lot sharper, but this is due to the default settings in LR 4.4.  You can correct this in LR and I assume the defaults will be corrected by Adobe eventually.  Capture One does not have this default settings issue.

What you should also consider is the lens system you are buying into.  The Fuji lenses are optically/mechanically very good to outstanding.  They are fair priced considering they are a 1/2 - 1 stop faster than the norm.  Quality hoods are also standard.  Sony lenses are not their equal.  The CZ lenses are nice, but pricey.
