Does M9 raw have similar problems as XPRO1?

Interestingly when I tried opening the RAW files with RPP, they were rendered in some form of colour monochrome and no matter what I did I could not get them to look 'normal' at all.

Might just be my unfamiliarity with RPP of course!

The RAW files allow it. It's just Adobe's decoding algorithm for the sensor which sucks. Silkypix, Raw Photo Processor (RPP) and DCRAW all decode the RAW files better than ACR currently does.

With this camera I'm mainly shooting jpeg anyway, since the jpeg's are so good. But I am shooting raw+jpeg (fine) in case I need to process a file because of something, or, for further black and white processing (Silver Efex 2) - and in that case I'll just use Silkypix to export a RAW file to TIFF and use that in Silver Efex.

For regular snaps and daily photographs there is for me absolutely no reason to mainly shoot RAW with this camera. The jpeg output is stunning.

So there is a kind of indirect correlation in my opinion.

JPEGs on XPRO1 seem to be excellent. It's just sad the RAW files do not currently allow to get a bit more from the sensor.

Then all of this is just an issue if you want to shoot RAW.
