Preview is not rendering fonts well in PDFs

in Mac Software edited January 2014

For some reason Preview is not rendering fonts well in PDFs. I have created high quality PDFs using two applications (Illustrator CS5 and Numbers '09) and in both cases the fonts are not rendering correctly in Preview. They generally look much less sharp. I am attaching screenshots below, with the original image first and then the PDF in Preview.

When I look at the same PDFs in Acrobat Pro the fonts look fine, so I am presuming that the issue is with Preview. Does anyone have any idea what might be going on?
