I've noticed that Fuji X-Pro2 RAW files takes more than 3 times longer to import (+render 1:1 previews) than RAWs from Fuji X-E2. And RAWs from X-E2 takes several times more than Canon 5D MkIII's.

It's getting really annoying, because I've got Core i7 4710HQ, 16GB of RAM and Seagate 600 Pro SSD and it took around 4 hours to import 700 RAW files which I think is not OK.

The Fuji X-Pro2 files use the X-Trans sensor and require a much more complex demosaicing algorithm compared to the Bayer sensor used in most cameras such as the 5DS.

Our engineering team is investigating potential ways to optimize this.
