Fuji X-E1 RAW Versus JPG Versus Canon 5D Mk2 RAW (Part 2)

I’ve finally managed to get out and take a few more comparison landscape shots using the Fuji X-E1 and the Canon 5D Mk2.
This time I’ve processed the Fuji RAW files with Iridient Developer before importing to Lightroom for a final tweak.
Please excuse the differences in white balance between the Canon and Fuji images. I didn’t try to make them identical.
Lenses used where the Fuji 18-55mm and the Canon 24-105mm L.
You can see the Canon RAW CR2 file on the left and the Fuji image processed with Iridient Developer on the right. (click for a larger image)

The thing that surprised me most was the Fuji’s sharpness at the edges of the frame compared to the Canon.
In almost all cases I prefer the Fuji images and I certainly prefer to cary the fuji around.
The canon is now finding itself left at home more often than not.

    Browsed your blog starting from the Lee article: nice, thank you.
    Yes, the X-E1 is awesome when combined with Iridient Digital Developer isn’t it? I also had a Canon 5D2 (plus some Zeiss lenses). Couldn’t believe my eyes when I compared the 2 and quickly sold the Canon. Are you familiar with: http://www.iridientdigital.com/iridientdeveloper/tutorials/IridientLightroomWorkflow.html ?
