Great sharpness with XT1 'kit' but why no 'pop'?

I'm planning a trip next month and while X100S was a superb tool for my travel, I find it not wide enough for my landscape shots (and 14mm is getting too wide)

Now I'm testing out the 18-55 with XT1, but while the images are very sharp, it just has a too digital flat look and lacks 'pop' for the lack of better word.

Forgive my basic question, but if both the 18-55 and the x100s lens are both equally sharp and shot at the same f stop, can a feel of an image really be that different?
