It is no secret that Lightroom does not handle Fujifilm files well at all. It creates very undesirable worming and/or oil painting effect that are frankly downright atrocious. I understand this is because Lr is built to handle files from Bayer type sensors used by Canon, Nikon, etc. but my question is when will Adobe finally take the time to PROPERLY handle X-Trans files? Fujifilm is officially a major player in the photography game and they should be taken a little more seriously. Furthermore, much smaller software companies like Iridiant have managed to render X-Trans files just fine so why can't Adobe figure it out? With it being so easy to just cancel your monthly subscription, I would think Adobe would be doing everything they can to fix these very blatant issues before they start losing customers, myself included. Adobe, just fix this issue that has been plaguing Fuji shooters for literally years. I love the user interface and workflow of Lr but I'm very seriously considering ditching Lr for Capture 1 to gain the image quality I can't get from Adobe

Fuji share <= 5%... minus OOC JPG shooters, minus people for whom it really is an critical issue... so "... I would think Adobe would be doing everything they can to fix these very blatant issues before they start losing customers, myself included. ..." = "The Uncatchable Joe":  Two cowboys, a newcomer and an old-timer, are drinking beer in front of a saloon. Suddenly, there is a clatter of hooves, a great cloud of dust, and something moving extremely fast from one end of town to the other. The newcomer looks at the old-timer, but seeing no reaction, decides to let the matter drop. However, several minutes later, the same cloud of dust, accompanied by the clatter of hooves, rapidly proceeds in the other direction. Not being able to see what’s behind the dust, and unable to contain his curiosity any longer, the newcomer asks: “OK, what the hell was that, Bill?” / “Oh, that’s Uncatchable Joe. Nobody has ever managed to catch him, Harry.” / “Why? Is he so fast, Bill?” / “Nope, it’s just because nobody needs him, Harry.”
