The Skin Smoothing Function is NOT a feature of Fuji cameras. It is a feature of Fuji printers (part of their Digital Lab equipment). Skin smoothing in JPEGs is the result of aggressive NR. One can minimize the issue by setting NR to -2 or process raw for complete control.

Actually, I did some side by side pics, with the X100s (set to NR -2) and a Olympus E-M1 and you can definitely see the smoothing going on with the Fuji compared to the Oly pics.

Yes, the X100s and newer cameras apply aggressive NR to high ISO JPEGs. If you compare to other cameras, the X100s JPEG will look smoother due to higher NR (even at -2). This should not be confused with Fuji's "Skin Smoothing Function" which is specific to Fuji printers.
