-have you compared real ISO or fuji's  ISO's, I measured a deviation of 1stop in high ISO area, in fact ISO 6400 on fuji corresponds with +/- 3200 ISO in real live

This can make people think a camera is better at high-ISO than it really is. A direct comparison is needed to confirm whether one camera is better than another or not.

-have you compared RAW's (LR4 or capture one 7)

You don't really know if there's much of a difference unless you can fix the shutter speed and compare photos.  With the ISOs set to auto, fix the shutter (and aperture, if reasonable -- Sony doesn't let you  have auto ISO in manual, but in more dim light, it can use max aperture in shutter priority mode) and let the ISO be whatever the camera wants.  Now compare the resulting photos.

You can't match ISOs then compare, as the given ISO number really varies between cameras, despite what some may think.  Check out DxO, as they find it out in their tests.

It's kind of tricky to actually do a good test comparison.

-did you check for color shifts

For legacy lenses?  I doubt standard lenses would have this?

-did you use lenses of equal quality for your comparisons

Are there lenses of equal quality?  What if Fuji has high-end zooms that Nex fans are still waiting for?  Or is the 16-50 good enough?
