Is X-trans sensor adequate for landscapes?
3

Hi there,

I'm currently a Canon DSLR user, mainly photographing mountaineering/hiking. I got fed up with the bulk of the 17-40L and the DSLR itself and started to look for a smaller solution.

I narrowed down my research to Sony A6000 with the crap kitlens and Fuji X-E2 with firmware 2.00.

My question goes here:

I read all the praising reviews of the Fuji X-trans sensor, and how amazing the kitlens is. But then I stumbled across this page:

http://www.michalography.com/blog/2014/5/31/the-fujifilm-x-e2-a-landscape-photographers-perspective.html

He states that Fuji cannot handle small details and the pictures are "painting like". His pictures in his post are indeed intolerably smudged.

Then I started to verify if other sources are the same, and indeed here are sample photoes with the X-E1, and similarly sumdged and painting like:

Then the DPreview photo gallery is similarly bad with the landscapes:

Is this for real guys? I mean the Sony kitlens is worst of the worst and still sharper and has more detail than the Fuji? Can this problem somehow countered?
