GxR m and voigt 40 f1.4

i just acquired a new GXR m mount, happy at first, but unhappy after i try it. i use voigtlander 40mm f1.4 for my GXR, What i find out, is the contrast and IQ is not that good. everybody keeps saying this little camera has great IQ, but this is not what i see. I also compare with my sony nex 5n ( using same lense) and fuji x100, and have a better results with these cameras.

is this my setup? or what?

I see only different WB of different cameras and different JPEG's settings and nothing else.

Tweak JPEG as you want...Or use RAW.
I use VIVID JPEG settings.
