Well, I've been playing around quite a bit with my X-E2s and honestly I'm not all that happy. I'm a Raw shooter and the detail from certain images processed with LR 6.6 look pretty bad. LR renders foilage in a landscape photo for example such that it looks more like an oil painting than a photograph from a camera with reasonable resolution. At first I thought something was wrong with my camera, but after trying SilkyPix and shooting some jpegs I can see that the issue is with LR. Unfortunately, while it's obviously programmed to properly handle the X-Trans files, the SilkyPix GUI is horrible to use.

Researching on-line indicates that this is a known problem and the only decent alternative to SilkyPix may be Iridient Developer, which is only available for Mac.

Does anyone have experience with any other Windows based Raw converter that can properly handle RAF files?

I also see this problem with my RAF files from my X-S1 when i work on them in LR5.7, I was experimenting with a base ISO normal exposure landscape shot, and it also looked like a oil panting despite how i moved the sliders, its as if Fuji have a secret formula that is not recognised in LR or Adobe products.

Not sure if I like the first one where I exposed for the highlights better, or the second one where I let them be blown out... thoughts?

I also prefer the first, because the interior detail is rendered better IMO. The exterior is uninteresting, so blow it out or not.

Adobe haven't made the necessary changes for properly demosaicing the Fuji X-Trans sensor files yet. Hopefully Fuji will work with them to sort it out, however I'm not holding my breath.

I'm really hoping one of the other converters gives a good result so that I don't have to get rid of my X-E2s and pick up a Sony. I love the control layout of the Fuji and the kit 18-55 seems like a pretty decent lens, however the dynamic range is mediocre and I wasn't expecting Raw conversion to be such a hassle.

Interesting... I keep going back to the second as the one I prefer. Also, I'm a bit confused by what you said... you said the exterior is uninteresting so let it be blown out, but then said you prefered the first where it wasn't blown out... it being uninteresting is part of why I like the second one better, I also like the breeze blowing the door cover higher in the second shot. I realize neither shot is particularly interesting, but just an interesting observation of dynamic range and how much it matters (or not) for certain scenes.

My comment on the exterior blowout out was only intended to eliminate it as a factor in my opinion. I think the image can work with or without it. The images are very close. Now that you mention it, I think I prefer the billowing door drape in no. 1. Ha.

Just started going through the photos from my trips.

First one is the Mackinaw Bridge shot from my campsite in the Upper Peninsula with the 16mm f1.4

Second is from the Blacksmith Shop on Mackinac Island with the 35mm f1.4.

Both were RAW files brought into lightroom and tweaked a little

Bond Falls in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Shot in Raw, Velvia preset added in lightroom, Some people and random branched cloned out.

It was so nice having the smaller camera, smaller lenses, and decreased weight during the whole trip!!
