Re: X100s really disappointing image. Is this normal?

If you have any doubt on the quality of the camera do the following

go in doors et aperture to 5.6 iso to 200 inactive NR use flash try to get a wall paper with repetitive small patterns shoot from say 2 meters try to be parallalel to the wall as much as possible the shoot ans adjust settings of flash to get light as uniform as possible

View 100% on the screen of the computer check corners and borders left and  right center as well and make sure that in corners sharpnees is still ok even if a bit less tha center

make sure that both sides are rather equivalent

The critical point in the test is the optical axis perpendicular to the wal It's better that the brick wall because completely flat so if ther is a problem you detect it immediately

This is my own personal test in my computer room I have a vintage 35 years old horrible wall paper already published here which is full of small dots a very good test i should never change it
