There are always artifacts with any kind of noise reduction.  I find that turning up color noise reduction will remove textures from red objects.  The red swatch on Imaging Resources studio scene is a good example of this.

High ISO. No noise reduction. There's a little more colour noise in the A1 file.

Color noise is easy to get rid of without any added artifacts.

For the luminance noise the x-a1 has a tiny bit more but it's also sharper. In lightroom when I turn the noise reduction to only around 15 the images match in sharpness and noise levels. x-a1 still being the better because it still retains more local color than the x-e1 file.
