Objects photographed against the sky or other blue coloured areas get a "halo" when images from Fujifilm X-trans cameras are developed in Lightroom.

My camera is a Fujifilm X-T1. Before this, I owned the X-E series cameras and noticed the same thing with them. Today I installed the latest version of Lightroom (5.4) and the problem is still there.

Lightroom doesn't handle blue coloured areas well. Take a look at the blue and red traffic signs. You may need to click the images to view them full size (they are 100 % crops).



Compare this with the same raw file developed in Capture One:

Looking at the red channel only shows this clearly



For comparison, the same image in Capture One
