I just purchased a Fujifilm X-T1. The camera produces excellent jpeg files. However, I prefer processing my work in RAW. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble deciding to upgrade with Adobe if their RAW converter is not up to par with Fuji.
Fujifilm renders images on their sensors differently than conventional Bayer sensors like Canon, Nikon, Olympus etc. Fuji uses an X-tran sensor with pixels arranged in a different pattern.
This has presents a new challenge because now one has to buy a third party in order to process Fuji RAW files and this disrupts the workflow between Lightroom and Photoshop.
I really love using Adobe and hope they will come up with a fix for this.
Unfortunately Adobe did not change/update the Raw engine of Lightroom with their CC /LR6 release.
So the renderquality for Fuji X-Trans files is the same as in LR 5.7. it is OK for many situations but the fancy 'watercolor' effect is undoubtly there.
I've purchased the LR 6 Update in hope for a better X-Trans support, a book module update and a massive speed improvement. Well, Its a disapointment mostly.
I' ve noticed that the overall speed is a bit better with LR6, but reading RAF files still takes forever (about twice as long as a Nikon D800 file) ans altough the usage is a bit faster thanks to some GPU usage, the final Image export or even the Preview generation still takes ages.
But face it, the only valid alternative would be PhaseOnes CaptureOnePro 8 and im not shure if I'm willing to ditch my whole image processing workflow.....
So, keep hoping for an update...
But for now, if You have LR 5.7 there is barely any reason to update to LR 6 in my opinion
