The X Trans sensors from Fujfilm are not supported/handled good enough in ACR/Lightroom.
I'm seriously considering switching to Capture One for this single reason. I want to get the best image quality possible, and even though I love Lightroom, I almost feel pressured to switch to Capture One after acquiring my Fujifilm XT-2. I love the camera, but I get disappointed every single time I open up a RAF file in Lightroom. The bad (capture) sharpening is quite frankly embarrassing compared to what I'm used to and expect from Adobe.
Just google wormy artifacts fuji lightroom to learn more.
I've tried different settings, but none of them are cutting it.
As I said: Really want to continue using Lightroom. It's been a trusty companion for many years, handling my NEF files just perfectly.
