Fujifilm Camera profiles in Lightroom CC don't match

So, it took me a bit to realize what was happening here, but it turns out the Fujifilm color profiles in Lightroom CC don't match the in-camera interpretation. I kept wondering why all my RAF files seemed so underexposed, and I've realized that the matching JPEGS (when shooting RAW + JPEG) look completely different.

Jon, 

Offhand, I am guessing this is a known limitation whenusing Fuji's DR mode. If you look at the images where this occurs, I am guessing that DR Mode is involved.Check you camera settings and make sure you are not using DR mode. 

DR mode uses in-camera computation to give the appearance of expanded dynamic range which would explain why your raws look darker than your JPEGs when viewed in Lightroom. There are quite a few posts explaining this scattered about the web.

Interesting. I use DR auto, so it bounces between 100% and 200%. More and more I lean towards shooting JPEG only, I just wish JPEGs could have XMP sidecars and carry their adjustments when exporting as originals to Lightroom Classic or other editors.
