Lightroom and Camera Raw / Bridge gives a crop on all raw pictures from Fuji X-E1 at import. This happens when shooting only raw, but not when shooting raw+jpg. This is a known problem that neest to be fixed ASAP.

I agree but this may be a problem also for Fuji!. The LR bug is that after resetting the crop back to the default dimensions, LR will not allow you to sync this change to other images in the set.

I select all images then I remove all LR impacts related to my upload. Then I have a clean start. I refuse to see any of this as a problem for Fuji. Adobe has f*cked up on this and need to fix it. As soon as it's fixed, then there is no problem anymore.

When will the next release be issued? This last message is a month old, and this is a serious problem.

It is annoying, but not really serious. Why not set the camera to RAW & smallest JPEG, and transfer only RAWs?That fixes the problem while waiting for a fix.

As the RAWs seem to be different when shooting RAW or RAW+JPEG, they have to be, there must be some bug in Fuji firmware also.

This is fully an Adobe problem. Neither SilkyPix nor the in-camera converter nor iOS PhotoRaw nor any other software exhibits this bug.

And it is a major problem when you have a large set of existing RAW files that CS6 is unable to process.

Historically, we've done releases every ~3 months or so, and the last release was in December, so that should give you an idea of when the next one will likely be.

Frankly, I think you're overstating the issue by claiming that CS6 is "unable to process" the images. CS6 can process them fine. It's just that the initial crop is wrong. You can fix that by selecting the Crop tool and choosing Clear Crop (or press the Delete key). If you have a bunch of images to work on, just select all of them in the ACR filmstrip, and do this Clear Crop step once. This will sync the changes across all of the images.

Thankyou for the information about likely dates Eric.

Will you be updating the Fuji X-E1 interpolation mechanism to reflect the Fuji matrix (as Capture One Pro 7 has recently)?

When opening Fujifilm X-E1 RAW files, Lightroom 4.2 automatically change the aspect ratio. It will return to normal if I press the "Reset" button for every single photo but it is troublesome.

Eric,

Thank you very much for this fix -- it's nice to get the cropped pixels back and this fixes the workflow.

I'm also curious if Adobe has improved ACR's X-Trans demosaicing algorithm -- comparing ACR 7.2 to SilkyPix, the artifacts reported in this blog post, , and elsewhere are quite apparent.

I've always planned that I'll have to reprocess all the X-E1's RAW files in a year or so after the optimizations for the new sensor grid have been ironed out.
