I wonder what the difference in detail would have been if you used the new Olympus 25mm 1.8 prime or the 12-40 2.8 instead of the 12-50 kit zoom, since they used the Fuji used the 35mm 1.4 prime? I don't know about the quality of the Fuji prime, but the 12-50 is certainly not one of the better mFTs lenses at 25mm.

The Fuji 35mm 1.8 prime is not the best in the corners but it's great in the center but is sharp throughout the frame f5.6 which was used on the french site.

They had the right idea by shooting with similar exposures but comparing the XT-1 with a $600 prime lens to an E-M1 with a multi-purpose kit lens is quite misleading to say the least.

It's a good thing the DPR samples with *comparable* lenses are available. The Fuji does have a lower shutter speed though so any IQ differences between the E-M1 and XT-1 might be even less given the same exposure.
