    Adobe are usually pretty quick, either on the official day of release (20th) or very shortly afterwards. Fuji worked with Adobe with the X-T2, so I imagine that this has been done with the X-T3 as well.

    Just tried a file with Fuji RAW Converter and that doesn't work yet neither does Iridient X Transformer. Just seen there is a beta version of Adobe RAW 11, dpreview have used it on their sample images gallery.

    Unfortunately no software manages to handle the Xtrans files perfectly yet, even irident, and I can't see why the new sensor in the XT3 would be any different tbh. I keep praying for Fuji to back to bayer but I can't ever see that happening now. You can minimise the problem to the point it's barely visible at normal viewing sizes.

    Don't start! :D. Not all of us see any issue with Fuji raw files in Lightroom. The best way to deal with sharpening raw files in LR is to do nothing. Accept whatever defaults Adobe have set for the relevant Fuji raw, and all will be well. They don't NEED sharpening.

    I love the Fuji jpeg. If I ever process a RAW I turn off all sharpening unless I print the picture.
    Even then I find minimal is enough.

    You all need to remember that the 'no sharpening' applies to X-Trans3 (not early X-Trans sensors). You'll all be ahead of me with X-Trans4 as I've not ordered an X-T3, I'm waiting for the GFX50R release and some proper reviews and images from you guys with the X-T3 before making my mind up (its all a bit mature for me!!)

    Stick with X-T2, or GFX50S or GFX50R or X-T3 (the X100F is going nowhere!!). The IQ of the X-T3 would have to blow me away for me to make the jump, the extra £100 I'd save by pre-ordering is nothing compared to getting the wrong camera!!!!

    I know, they look so lovely those cabinets..... I actually bought a display cabinet for my Sony gear but then that idea came to a thud when I released I have a 3 year old who would probably rip the cabinet off the wall and make my G Master lenses look like metal road cones :D lol

    PS3? Is that how long it takes them to make one that it's instantly out dated on completion? (Sounds like Canon doesn't it?)

    Not sure that I agree that they don't need sharpening at all - I suppose it depends on your preferences - and to some degree your workflow. I have all sharpening in LR turned off by default (if you don't turn it off then the Adobe default settings will apply some sharpening) but I always work with my RAW files and I always finish them off in Photoshop. There I sharpen by using the High Pass filter method, and invariably with a radius of 2 pixels (whereas I would usually go to 3 pixels with my Nikon D800 files).

    Each to their own of course, but this works for me.

    As you say, each to their own. I leave the Adobe settings for sharpening alone, but increase Clarity by up to 18. Only use PS for text layers. Bit of a waste, but it came free with LR!

    Still thinking of returning to Fuji, and as part of the decision making process, obviously the cost of replacing glass has to factor in. It goes without saying that the most used focal length without doubt has to be in the 24(28)mm to 70mm ish range (equivalent). That being the case, what are the relative thoughts on the Fuji 16-55 F2.8 vs the diminutive Fuji 18-55 F2.8-4 ?

    I did have the latter last time round but I mustn't have got a good copy as mine wasn't overly sharp. Taking sample variation away, is the 16-55 really worth the extra dosh and size/weight over its smaller cousin ? I appreciate they are two slightly different lenses with the 16-55 being a red badge pro grade lens that is both wider and a constant aperture, but whilst I've never held one, it does look like a beast, and despite my reservations over my previous sample of the 18-55, most people rave about it's superb optical qualities ?

    Thoughts please ?

    If you need constant F2.8 than the 16-55 is a no brainer, but is fairly big and weighty compared to the 18-55

    If you need stabilisation then the 18-55 is a no brainer - or wait for X-H2

    Optically they are both good and at F8 etc there is/should be very little difference.

    It really depends on what your shooting requirements are.

    I shoot a lot of natural light in my studio so I went for the 16-55 with my XT2, it is brilliant wide open and feels balanced when I use a gripped body.

    I also have the 18-55 which I use for video when it is required.

    Of the two the 16-55 is the daddy for me.

    It can feel like a beast when you first hold it but you soon get used to it. Compared to some of the Sony / Sigma glass it's lightweight. 16-55 all the way for me, I had an 18-55 for a short time and couldn't get on with it, always felt something was lacking on sharpness.

    Don't see a lot wrong with the Mk3 sensor. Why not wait for the X-H4? Who knows what that will have? :D
