Thanks for taking the time to do this. It looks like the 5n draws more detail out of the shrubbery than the X-E1 in Lightroom, the Fuji Jpegs have lots of built-in sharpening and weird smoothing, and the X-E1 in RPP version has tons of artifacts.
If you could make the raws available, it will be easier to get a better understanding of the differences.
I'm not sure I agree with the first part. At any rate, the differences are so minor, they are irrelevant. RPP definitely does pull out more detail, but the color artifacts are all over (the Nex/Lightroom combo interestingly produces some color artifacts as well - look at the fence on the third sample). There is definitely some smoothing in the jpeg file, but these are 100% crops. Not sure how much of a difference this would actually make, and most people so far think it looks the best. Anyway, I just hope that this puts to rest the idea that the fuji cameras are somehow disadvantaged at low ISO, and that the inherent lower chroma resolution has any real impact on image quality. I expect even better results with better processing algorithms. Here are the raw files:
