Interesting that people keep saying “any of the recent Fuji’s”.

I’ve owned and used Fuji’s of every generation, primarily for JPEG’s. XE1, X-Pro1, XE2, XT1, X-Pro2 (for the past couple of years) and now X-T3.

The other day I was kindly given an old XE1 from a friend and have been playing around with it alongside my XT3 (which I don’t consider to be particularly different to my X-Pro2 for IQ). I don’t know if it’s the white balance, lower res, or some other aspect of the colour science or processing, but for all its flaws I pretty much always prefer the look of the XE1’s images out of camera. I didn’t want it to be this way, but I think it is.

I recommended the newer models because of Acros and Classic Chrome film sims since the OP is interested in mostly SOOC Jpegs. But yes I’ve seen some beautiful shots coming from the 16 mp Fuji’s.

After all is said and done and your photo is hanging on the wall, no one is going to know or care what camera, lens, or what post processing you used. All they care about is if the image moves them.
I’m not hung up on the Bokeh fad because I’m too busy chasing shadows.
