    I have searched high and low on the Internet for this with no luck.

    Will you be able to evaluate this feature of the XE-2, please?

    I use my XE-1 for landscape and architectural shooting and would love to be convinced that I could shoot at f16 and not lose resolution to diffraction.

    Thank you.

    I have already posted LMO comparisons in my First Look about the X-E2.

    Thank you

    First may I say thank you for everything you do. It is extremely valuable to me.

    Is there any chance to get the full sized images with LMO ON and OFF? The 100% crops you posted look over sharpened with LMO on.

    This is what I am afraid of. Out of focus areas will look over sharpened.

    I know you don't shoot test charts, but in this case, it would best demonstrate the effectiveness of the LMO.

    I wouldn't even ask if it weren't the feature that would tip the scale for me.

    I already have two XE-1 bodies (one IR converted) and 14,23,35,60 primes and two zooms. I am quite happy with the AF system for what I shoot.

    Thank you very much.

    Thank you so much.

    Does the LMO affect the RAW file?

    I looked at every inch of the images side by side. I am impressed. It is not drastic, but it is obvious. The corners benefit the most.

    No RAW effect.

    Yes, I think it's quite impressive but still subtle enough.

    Thank you again, not just for this help but for all your knowledge.

    I teach photography for a living and appreciate the value of what you do.
