Pity he only used the new 18-55 variable aperture zoom and not the excellent 35mm F/1.4.
I think he'd find them even closer if he had :)

If Canon releases another camera with the same 18MP APS-C sensor, it's goodbye Canon and hello Fuji!

Interesting conclusion:
Its images come close in quality to the EOS 5D Mark III over a wide range of ISO settings.

I took a look at the pictures and i can't follow this conclusion.
- Comparison 1 on page 2: roof with trees in the background. Look, how soft these trees are with the Fuji.
- Comparison 2 on page 2: 100% showing branches. Awful color fringing and softness with the Fuji
- Comparison 3 on page 2: the neighboorhood. Again: soft trees in the background. Low contrast.
- Comparison 4 on page 2: roofs and church. Soft roofing tiles

I wonder, how Martin can come to the conclusion above. In my opinion, the Fuji never comes close to the Canon. It's a nice camera, but the Canon is on a much higher level.

That's what I thought also.  The Canon files clearly look better, with not just subtle differences.  Sure the Fuji 35 f/1.4 would have been better, but Canon also has better lenses, i.e. 24 T-SE II, 24-70 II, 70-200 II, 85L II, etc..

I agree with your outlook..
..I also think that the lenses are fairly matched...but both cameras would improve with primes....
The Fuji should have more DOF...so what is all of this foreground and background softness...could be operator error?
The 5D3 is at another level IMHO, too.

Why the comparison between a APS sensor and a 24x36 sensor?
If there have been a DR comparison the 5dmk3 had been blowing of the street.Inside the Fuji are a Sony 16 mp with Fujis CFA
Regarding resolution and 16Mp against a 24 x36mm sensor there are now question about the  real resolution=.a 2,3 larger sensor area in the Canon 5dmk3 .
so  I ask , why comparing a  APS sensor with  a canon 24x 36mm sensor?
Excellent question.  Without knowing the photographer and if he gets compensation for promoting a particular camera, comparisons like that one leave me wondering.
