X100 RAW processed - it's terrific

We've all been waiting to see what the X100 can do in RAW, but have been unable to open the samples in any programs.

In this thread, http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1020&thread=37858823 , user ncruzes did us a big favor. He used a special patched version of a RAW converter to convert the RAWs to PNG.

I downloaded those PNGs from his dropbox, and converted them to TIFF in iPhoto.

Then used Lightroom 3 and Photoshop CS4 to process the TIFF as I would any RAW file -- denoise, sharpening, adjusting exposure, color, contrast, etc.

For those who complained that the X100 produces soft, flat images -- rest assured -- the RAWs can deliver the goods.

Here is a link to download the "before" (unprocessed TIFF) http://db.tt/uM3tnCm and the "after" (post-processed TIFF) http://db.tt/dvXlxHS
