Initial feeling is that it lacks ’magic’ and is a bit clinical. Doesn’t pop and can easily generate too soft results.

Requires a lot of post production.

Lots of worm shapes too...

If not overcooked, it has the potential to be crisp

'Worm shapes' have nothing to do with the lens, that is down to your processing ability.  I'm often surprised at just how many Fuji owners are incapable of processing Fuji RAW files properly ...

Also, I think it's time 'pop' and 'clinical' were dropped from image quality lingo.

If I were to take your comments seriously, I might have to strongly recommend a sense of humor transplant.  This is all in fun, though I suppose that humor doesn’t always translate well.

I heard the post-processing can be painful at times.

An excellent and comprehensive review. Thanks for taking the time to share these insights.

I wasn’t sure if it was manufactured in China or Japan. Can you check the label and let us know?

Well, Cagey75, I admit you've got me baffled... either you possess one of the most droll senses of humour ever, or none at all. I can't figure out which it is

As for the original post; one of the funniest things I've ever seen on this forum. Well done, Polybazze!!

No problem for me... you may choose to ignore any of them, but occasionally at your own risk, depending on the topic and content.  The comment you responded to seriously was intended to be humorous... something which appeared to be completely lost on you.
