I had my XF/3100 a few days ago. Before I buy, one of the question I asked was how difference is it from 180. I attended the 3100 launch and my experience was the red saturation was higher than 180. But DT skin tone samples show that they are very similar. So here i am doing my own test.
Today I borrowed my friend df/180 and did a simple test against 3100.
Both was in tripod with timer and MUP. 3100 with 80mm LS Blue ring, DF with 80mm LS. Focus on center point of the frame. 3100: IIQ S, 180: IIQ L

The result: I find both back somehow similar. 3100 has more saturation in red. The yellow/green trees in the test looks more pleasant in the 180 than 3100. Also I dont find the 3100 have big advantage in dynamic range over 180, looks almost similar. The 3100 suppose to be 2.5 stops better than 180. Anyone else can comment on DR?
Hope to see your feedback here.
