Fuji X100: Image quality and resolution

To test the FujiX100 image quality, we shot our resolution chart with the X100's 23mm f/2 lens. 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 Fuji X100 is capable of resolving up to nearly 24 (line widths per picture height x100) in its highest quality JPEG files. Examining images of the chart taken at each sensitivity setting reveals the following resolution scores in line widths per picture height x100:
