The Fuji file was upsized to the same size of the Nikon in Iridient Developer and not Photoshop for the purposes of this test. Both of course could be processed better (or worse!) with some tweaking and by using the Nikon raw file. To my eyes the Nikon is still sharper and nicer looking but then this is a huge blowup and for reproduction purposes, and importantly as far as I'm concerned, for being accepted by picture libraries, there is virtually nothing in it. With some careful processing and post-processing I could probably get the two even closer, but this will show just what the X-Trans sensor is capable of once its files are processed in a software package that attempts to do them justice.
