Monochrome+Green Film Simulation and in-camera 1:1 Aspect Ratio

This photo has not been post-processed in any way, all results are in-camera
The first part of my review entitled REVIEW: Fujifilm X-T1 with 18-55mm & XF 23mm Lenses (Part I of III), started to discuss camera features but this article is just about showing some images that I felt showed off the quality of the sensor and in-camera processing of this camera.
Real World Sample Images
You can view the full set of casual snapshot photos at http://photos.ronmartblog.com/fujifilm/x-t1. Please note that this gallery currently contains images that up until March 16, 2014 were shot with the internal noise reduction feature set to the default of 0.
Please note that all of these images are the original jpeg’s as they came out of the camera. If you click the image you’ll see the full size version exactly as it came out of the camera. The file name and metadata will offer a clue as to what’s what lens and settings were used when the shot was taken.
You may download and inspect these images for your own review, but please delete them when you are done. You may not alter, re-post, print, or otherwise use these images in any way without my signed (on paper) consent. Copyright © Ron Martinsen – ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

f/4.5 @ 44.4 mm, 1/58, ISO 12800, No Flash (kit lens)
While the in-camera noise reduction is bad, this is still a pretty good result
right out of the camera with no editing.
f/4 @ 30.2 mm, 1/38, ISO 12800, No Flash (kit lens)
Typically shooting in a dimly lit pub is disastrous, but
the X-T1 was up to the challenge
f/4 @ 46.3 mm, 1/400, ISO 12800, No Flash (kit lens)
Continuous focus did okay for this parade, but poorly everywhere else.
f/4 @ 55 mm, 1/30, ISO 3200, No Flash (kit lens)
While not perfect, the AF system can be brilliant at times
f/14 @ 18 mm, 12s, ISO 200, tripod (kit lens)
Judge for yourself, f/14 even on the kit lens isn’t too bad
f/16 @ 18 mm, 7s, ISO 200, tripod (kit lens)
With f/14 looking so good I tried f/16 on this F1 race car
f/1.4 @ 23 mm, 1/105, ISO 400, No Flash, Handheld (XF 23mm lens)

The awesome AF assist beam made shots like this easy
f/1.4 @ 23 mm, 1/26, ISO 200, No Flash, Handheld (XF 23mm lens)
At f/1.4 you just get a sliver of working area but you are rewarded with gorgeous bokeh
f/16 @ 23 mm, 5s, ISO 200, No Flash, Handheld (XF 23mm lens)
At f/16 you get it all- - this case, the flower’s stem.
f/1.4 @ 23 mm, 1/45, ISO 200, No Flash, Tripod (XF 23mm lens)
Manual focus with focus peaking worked okay but the color choices are all hard to see
My bookshelf tests are coming in the next installment, but here’s one to chew on that was done with the amazing 23mm lens using camera default settings except noise reduction has been set to –2.
