Re: Fuji XE1 versus Nex 6 image quality

The sensor is the same, the toppings are different (CFA, AA vs. no AA filter). The Fuji overstates ISO by about 2/3 stop in my experience compared to the Sony A77. I switched to the X-E1 from a NEX 5 and 5n mainly for the UI and the lenses. I have the 18-55mm and the 35mm which are leaps and bounds above anything comparable offered for E-mount with the possible exception of the 24mm f/1.8.

The Fujifilm's greatest strengths besides the terrific UI and lenses are the jpeg engine and very robust AWB. The option to reprocess RAW in-camera is also a welcome feature.

Reachable IQ in PP is about the same for all Sony 16MP sensor equipped cameras, they're all excellent in RAW output. IMHO the Fuji system makes the process of getting there more enjoyable.
