i really, really want to get one of the new fuji x-t1s to server as a lightweight companion system to my big bulky nikon full frame stuff. it seems to be the camera ive been waiting for, awesome EVF, manual controls, sizable sensor, good lens lineup available, awesome build quality, etc, etc.. but every single sample image i find from the x-t1 or the x-e2 look somewhat soft to me in the infocus areas, which is a bit surprising to me since they dont have the AA filter. Am i just imagining that my FF is producing sharper shots with an AA filter than the fujis are without? is it just a matter of imature demosaicing on the xtrans pattern? Or am i just spoiled by FF?

No idea as to where this "soft" comes from. Here is a shot taken with the X-E2, natural light and an awsome Nikkor 105/2.5. How can this possibly be soft?? The Nikkor one of the finest lenses ever made - and it shows!
