It is a fact that Fuji has excessive noise reduction.

This is not a fact. (Excessive noise reduction would show lack of detail. There is none)

There is a reason people say skin on shots from Fuji looks like plastic.

This is not a fact. (this applies to a very specific use-case: high-ISO JPGs only. ISOs lower than about 5000 aren't affected, nor are RAWs. It doesn't apply to the OP's situation)

Let's not forget about the water color effect that often crops up either.

This is not a fact. (this complaint was pretty much obsolescent a year ago)

If you think rendering that looks like it was painted by water color and plastic skin is detail, you're smoking some good stuff.

I own both m43 and Fuji. I know your signature says you're infatuated with your Olympus, but really there's no reason to post misinformation.

It is easy to have lower noise levels at ISO 3200 than other cameras, just call your ISO1600 - 3200.

From DPR review of E-X2

However, a significant part of this advantage stems from the camera's need for longer exposures to achieve the same JPEG brightness level as its rivals. This is the way the ISO standard is measured, and the basis on which we conduct this test. However the X-E2's need for unusually long exposures explains much of the difference we see between it and the Sony NEX-6; in fact it's probably better compared to the performance of its peers set 1EV lower (i.e. ISO 400 on the Fujifilm compared to ISO 200 on its rivals).
