Lightroom: Processing of Fuji GFX raw files is horrible. Tethering is also terrible.

Noise handling of FUJI GFX 50S FILES IS COMPLETELY AWFUL.  WHEN RUNNING THE FILES IN OTHER SOFTWARES IT HANDLES THE RAW FILES PERFECTLY.  ADOBE YOU ARE LOSING PROFESSIONALS TO CAPTURE ONE AND OTHER PROGRAMS DAILY.  PLEASE TAKE THIS CAMERA SERIOUSLY AS MANY PROFESSIONAL MEDIUM FORMAT SHOOTERS HAVE MOVED TO IT.

Are you tethering with FUJI GFX 50S? Note that Lightroom does not ship with the tether support for Fuji cameras. Are you getting your Lightroom tethering support from http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/hsv5/plugin_01/? You should probably talk to the plug-in developer directly.

How does Adobe pick and choose who they will support and won't support?

It's mainly dependent on whether the camera company provide an SDK. In Fuji's case, they chose to support a tethering plug-in themselves instead, but only for certain cameras.

When you say the noise handling of FUJI GFX 50S FILES in Lightroom is awful? Can you explain what you mean? Can you share an example of an RAF with the sidecar XMP to illustrate the issue? Thanks.

Can  you upload a sample that has excess noise to some large-file-hosting-service like www.dropbox.com and share a public download link in a reply, here, please?

Sorry for typing in all caps, I am attempting to get Raw files from people in the GFX group to share there have been several people reporting all the same issues with the GFX and the poor quality of processing with Lightroom. I have been a Lightroom user since Lightroom 1 and love most of Lightroom but I feel like the areas it's lacking tethering, skin tone processing, color reproduction are the areas Capture one is surpassing Lightroom. I just wonder why Lightroom doesn't take a more serious look at these areas. As many professionals are leaving the platform......

How many GFX users are processing their raw files in Capture One?
