Overall picture

Our results from the lab have been compared against the Leica M9, Canon EOS 5D MK II and Nikon D700.

Our analysis shows that all four cameras produce good results, but the X Pro 1's was the real star living up to Fuji's claims that images are as good, if not better in some cases than those captured by a full frame sensor. Only the Canon EOS 5D MK II was able to have any impact on X Pro 1's impressive results, with a better signal to noise ratio result for raw files.

Resolution

As part of our image quality testing for the Fujifilm X Pro-1, we've shot our resolution chart with the Fujinon XF60mm f/2.4 R Macro lens mounted.

If you view our crops of the resolution chart's central section at 100% (or Actual Pixels) you will see that, for example, at ISO 100 the X Pro 1 is capable of resolving up to around 24 (line widths per picture height x100) in its highest quality JPEG files.
