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?

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.

DPReview's RAW comparison uses Lightroom's default import settings which are far from optimal with Fuji X-Trans files. With good processing (Lightroom w/Iridient X-Transformer for the Fuji here) they are very close and it really comes down to the quality of glass you're using. Here are the X-H1 with the Fuji 56 (The X-T4 will look about the same) and the Canon R6 with the superb 50mm f/1.2. The FF Canon will have about a one stop advantage in terms of high ISO performance and DR, but in the real world the glass and the photographer will have more to do with image quality than which camera you use.
