Yes I agree that contacting Fuji directly is critical.
In the past I've emailed Fuji North America and received a response with the phone number for NA tech support.
Those guys are helpful and are aware of the issues. Most recently they explained that the best way to address
firmware enhancements and raw conversion feedback was to contact Fujifilm Tokyo directly.
They advised using the 'global' link on the FJ www site and to use the entry form there.
I did that yesterday am entertaining the fond hope that I'll get a response.
that they don't advise that the solution is to use Silkypix.
I love the camera and lenses and the OOC Jpegs. The quality of the raw conversions in LR are generally ok for
prints up to 25cm x 30 cm by my criteria. However ~ 10% of the files have funky watercolor like rendering.
This is most apparent with images that contain lots of fine detail. There is also the issue of color smearing
that degrades some subset of the converted files.
I'm trying to remain optimistic that the quality of the Adobe Raw conversion will evolve/improve.
