I haven't used the GR and can't speak to the files or how they handle. I've used and currently use other digital cameras including RD-1 M8, M9,RX-1, X100, MM and Fuji X Pro2. I find the files from the X 113 right in there and easy to work with. If someone thinks they need larger files, that's one thing.
After direct comparison testing with other cameras, I would characterize the AA filter on the X 113 as relatively weak. For my money it contributes to a well balanced roundness in the images. The files are in no way un-sharp, just not squeaky clean or sterile, or edgy in quality. My sense is the same is true of the X Vario. We see many images from both cameras here and elsewhere that speak for themselves. But then, on my M cameras, I'm perfectly satisfied with the Summicron v4, not the sharpest knife in the block but plenty sharp and consistently delivers a look that I enjoy.
Here below is a snap that I think exemplifies one aspect of what the X 113 does nicely. To my eyes, it's plenty sharp with nice 3d quality and color.
