Based on the DPReview's Studio shot comparison tool, with raw selected, the comparison between X-T3/4 and other cameras (Canon R6, Nikon z6 II) the Fuji was not as clear and sharp. Is this inherent in fuji's cameras, related to the specific lenses the DPReview tool uses, or something else I am missing?

It may be something else you're missing. The Xt-3/4 are Fuji X-Trans sensor cameras. The color filter array is not a standard Bayer configuration. DPReview uses Adobe to do their raw conversion processing for their comparison tool.

This is a known issue: Adobe doesn't play nice with X-Trans. Download the raw files and convert them with a different (non-Adobe) raw converter to see the difference.

Here's a photo taken with my XT-2 (raw file converted using Raw Therapee which works well with X-Trans):  tomatoes.jpg check if that's clear/sharp enough.

Currently with Canon 7d and looking at switching. Since existing EF/EF-S lenses are not compatible with new cameras (without adaptor and with limitations), I am looking at being forced to start fresh. As such, then no restrictions on what brand I go with.

Take landscape and family/pet photos primarily, with the latter being more low light situations. See mixed thoughts on Fuji, but for most part seemed a popular camera. But after looking at the comparison tool, having concerns that I am not looking at results properly.
