Apologies for barging... Was just zapping through this forum looking for X100s pics, and was puzzled by the thread title.

I have not looked closely at that many X100s pics yet, but while the ones you have posted look good from the distance, with nice grays for example on #1 and interesting composition, I just zoomed now on #1, looking at the boy's face at 100%, and indeed, the skin (and t-shirt) shows horrible "watercolour" smudge.

I am amazed to see this, and wonder if you have not been a way too radical in your jpeg compression or whatever PP you might have managed?

Do not get me wrong: the pic looks real good from normal viewing distance. But, technically, at 100%, there is clearly something wrong.

I cannot imagine for 1 second that X100s pictures are usually like this.

Again, apologies for barging in this this forum as I am not a Fuji owner (yet).
