The sensor produces amazing image quality. Just because Adobe and others are taking longer to figure out the RAW formula doesn't mean it's a mistake. Patience.

One has to wonder what Fuji is doing by not providing guidance — if not the exact algorithms/techniques — on how to process the raw files.

I hope they provide Apple with the algorithm as I don't imagine the Aperture team trying to figure this out.

So my conclusion, sorry to say, is that the Fuji X-Pro1 X-Trans sensor doesn't deliver what Fuji promises. In fact, it underperforms similar DX sensored cameras.

This is not to say that the Fuji X-Pro1 is a bad camera - far from it - the camera has great lenses, a really attractive viewfinder and design, and in many ways the sensor is great, with low noise and clean data, in the class of the recent Sony and Nikon sensors. It just would have been a better camera with a conventional two-by-two sensor layout.
