I'm looking on my iPad right now, so it may be hard to definitively say, but they look similar, but with higher contrast on the EP3. What are the JPEG sharpening settings?


they are at zero, on both cameras…
the Olympus seems sharper to me, but even if they were exactly the same that would be weird as well.
I was expecting fuji to be better.

I shot them both super fine jpegs (or how they call it).


There are several factors which are different. First of all, you are testing the quality of JPG engines, and Olymus is known to have an excellent one. Secondly, you shot the Fuji closer, and many lenses do not perform as well that close. And then there is the depth of field.

I would shoot something outside, at a middle distance, with RAW, and stop down to f/5.6 to avoid depth of field being an issue so much. Shoot maybe a brick wall at an angle, so that you can choose the spot with sharpest focus afterwards.

Yes, thank you, but I am actually trying to determine which camera performs better with this lens (canon fd 50mm) at f1.4. As per the brick wall, is actually what I did somehow, using the tilted sheet paper with text, in order to be able to find the most focused part….

To me (on my computer now), there appears to be the same amount of resolution (or higher on the fuji), just that the Olympus default ('0') sharpening is actually a little more aggressive.

yeah i would shoot raw if you want to compare sharpness, jpeg engines will have very different levels of sharpening even if you set them both to zero.

Although, in RAW, the X-E1 requires higher sharpening than bayer sensors due to the way it demosaics...the resolution is there, but you need more aggressive sharpening to bring it out fully.

but it doesn't have an AA filter, does it really need more sharpening? i haven't played with the raws since adobe and C1 updated their processing.

You'd think, but not the case. Frankly I see no resolution benefit to the Xtrans sensor. It controls chroma noise extremely well, and luminance noise is well controlled too. Beautiful skin tones and overall tonal separation and gradation, but resolution seems on par or slightly below my OMD.

Yes, it seems so, but in my case it seems to be on par with e-p3 as well….
here is btw another 100% crop from a RAW file, as requested, imported with LR third

resolution is pretty much the same, not better than micro4/3's

Anyway, I am afraid I will resign myself to use that lens with a micro4/3 camera

Wow. I like the 18-55, and I use it a lot, but I wouldn't give up the 35 for it.

Katie, I would class the 35 as a great lens, I love mine.
I like my 18-55 also, but I also would not trade my 35 for it.

Got an X-Pro 1 & 18-55 a couple of weeks back. Liking it so far as a lightweight alternative to my Nikon gear.

First I used this camera was with the 2.0 update, so everything seems to be fine with it. My only real gripe is having to press that "AF" button to change focus points !! AF speed seems fine enough with the 18-55.

Very surprised and happy with the 18-55 "kit" lens. You can still squeeze some bokeh out at 55 f/4

But I don't EVER shoot 50mm equivalent focal length! I would be so much better off with a 35mm or wider as a main AF lens. As far as primes go, I have my M mount lenses in 15mm, 21mm, 28mm and a cheapo 50ishmm (industar). I KNOW I want the 55-200 zoom this summer ... but just don't think the 35mm --> basically a 50mm should be my go to AF prime. I'm having a hard time composing with this length. Maybe I'll keep it until I get the zoom and then decide from there.

This is my first post here at fuji forum.
I bought a x-pro1 used couple of days ago since I've sold my beloved m8.2.
When I held x-pro1 in hand for the first time. I was so disappointed.
I was even more disappointed with the 35 1.4.
Mainly because I was so used to heavy & tight leicas.
My 35 summicron asph seems to have slightly soft edges sometimes (I use the fuji m adapter)

And the OVF is truely wasting time when using leica glass. The frame line is so inaccurate.
maybe I'm doing something wrong here.

Most of the time, I only use EVF.
So what I'm going to do next is add X-E1 !!
The IQ is great and overal speed is so much faster than my leica although I miss that craftmanship.
And the panorama is so much fun!

Here are couple images I've taken at first outting with fuji and leica glass.
