I have the Fuji x70 and when I port over the RAW to LR, the details/colors seem muddy and almost painterly. I think I read that it was Adobe's algorithm that was producing this effect, and if using other software, like Google Nike, this issue goes away and produces sharper images.

From my understanding they both have the APS-C X-Trans II sensor? I was looking at the x100T for its focal length and glass speed instead of the x70.

Are you changing the camera profile to one of the Fuji options available?

It auto loads as Classic Chrome in which I shoot in, but then I tried reverting back to the Default Camera profile, but still does not show improved sharpness.

I have a x100t, and just shoot jpegs, I use settings below, (thanks Ted Gamble from x100t Flickr)

Focus Mode: AF-S most of the time.
Focus Box Size: As small as possible.
Metering: Multi unless Spot when needed.
White Balance: Auto unless specific change is needed.
DR: 100 and manually bump to 200 or 400 as needed.
Sharpness: +1 or +2 depending on your preference (always)
NR: -2 (always)

The following are my Custom Settings (in no particular order):

When using Provia, ClassicChrome, ProNegHi, Astia:
HTone: -1
STone: -1
Color: +1

When using ProNegStd:
HTone: -1
STone: 0
Color: +1

When using Velvia:
HTone: -1
STone: -1
Color: 0

When using Black & White:
HTone: -1
STone: -1
Color: n/a

You might want to look into how to use Lightroom with Fuji files:

http://petebridgwood.c​om ...14/10/x-trans-sharpening/ (external link)

And then spend some time in setting up some presets you can apply on demand to get the raw files to the results you like. With a current version of Lightroom nearly all complains of it not sharpening as expected or getting "muddy colors" or whatever are operator error, not Lightroom or camera. There are some exceptions but only very few.

I have a x100 newest updates and light room as well. I'm not overly impressed by the images I get from this cam raw or jpeg. I don't find them sharp either. I am still getting used to this cam aND editing the raw files. I've had worse luck using mf. I followed the advice of some users here and a link to some custom settings.things seem a bit better but still not what I was expecting. I like the cam I just don't love it.

I don't have LR but I process the RAF files in Adobe Camera Raw which I believe is the same engine in LR. There should be a Camera Calibration panel in LR where you can change the profile. There are currently six color profiles and four B&W available for the X100s. You probably have more for the X70. After that make your adjustments. The link that cug posted has some good info.

By operator error, are you referring to technical inability when actually shooting or not knowing the right procedure to correctly sharpen them in LR per your article?

I'm fairly certain the image itself isn't suffering from blur/lack of sharpness, but the algorithm for processing (which is why I mentioned editing in other software produces good results).

The article seems helpful, I'll try to apply some of the presets/detail increase and see what I get, thanks!

I meant that Fuji files seem to want different treatment in post processing with regards to sharpening. This is true for XTrans I and XTrans II files, XTrans III files (X-Pro2 and X-T2) seem slightly different again, although I start out with the same basic settings from the article I've mentioned.
