This proves categorically the faults with X-Trans, it creates blurry images which lack fine details. It's the number one reason I'll never own a Fuji camera until X-Trans has an off switch. Speaking of base ISO is irrelevant, X-Trans destroys images whether at base ISO or otherwise and from a technical perspective as it should be looked at to achieve what it does, it's not a good solution.

Perhaps if you're too lazy to care and you want to post jpegs out of the camera to facebook then you buy a Fuji camera.

You need to use the right raw processor with X trans files, Adobe isn't the way to go, you can get excellent results using the Fuji's, you just have to know what you're doing. It's very easy to get X-trans raw files and test this out. There are some very bad examples from the X-trans sensors all over the net, but plenty of good ones as well. Simon who is also an m4/3's user posted a very good article on his blog about the X-T1, I don't see anything to worry about from this camera here.

There will be demosaicing problems with X-trans sensors no matter which RAW converter you use although the problems will not necessarily be the same. See here for a discussion of the reasons.
