Re: Samples seem to show more than just image softness...

I agree with your back-ground blur observations, Marco. But I think mostly what is happening here is that these Japanese photographers are trying to achieve maximum back-ground blur rather than sharpest image. Thus they are shooting wide open and using either an in-camera or other software trick to blur the back-ground.

I'll bet you're right.  I think we all try to get some background blur whenever we get to play with a new camera.  It makes sense that they would use f/2 etc .  Looking forward to seeing samples taken at different apertures.  I think that members here might try to demonstrate the differences with the apertures when they get their hands on the new model.  I'm very curious to see some handheld samples from around f/4 to perhaps around f/7.
