This is a better example because it shows it isn't just a skintone issue but an overall smoothing of jpegs. It is most noticeable in her hair.

This isn't uncommon across the board with camera manufacturers. Some camera companies are worse offenders than others (in particular I've dealt with this with Sony's) and you often can't turn it off completely. If you want to resolve as much detail as possible you NEED to work with RAWs at high ISOs.

I have the opposite problem with Olympus. You can't turn the sharpening off with jpegs...even at the lowest setting. If you don't want oversharpening you need to shoot RAW.

Here is my example I've posted on other threads that demonstrates why I shoot Fuji at NR -2 and S -2. I do wish there was a lower NR setting but I don't think it is terrible.

In my experience the XA-1 is the most aggressive of the Fuji's, with respect to NR.

This is a perfect example.

I can't understand for the life of me why this thread contains people such as Ed B who can't see a difference.

It just goes to show everyone has different needs. To more experienced shooters this is obviously a problem.

Myself and a fellow Fuji user have emailed Fuji three times since getting my X-E2 / his X-T1 - absolutely no response from them, yet they have happily answered all other queries.

I am lead to believe this is something they cannot easily fix.

It's crazy to think we are both considering downgrading to the X-Pro1, but what other choice does their since give? X-Trans II has killed Fuji's excellent rep for JEPGS.
