Re: Is it me or do all fuji xtrans photos look a little soft?

Yes, if you look at the studio shots here on DP and compare them to comparable cameras, they do look softer.

However, that appears to be a conscience decision that plays out in how the firmware manages noise. Crank up the ISO in those studio images and you'll see that the Fuji does miracles all the way to 6400.

Just compare the XE-2 on ISO 6400 to the same settings on a Sony A7R, an Olympus OM-D E-M5, and the 5DIII and you'll see what I mean. The XE-2 images are totally usable. The other images are totally not.
