That's a start, but you also need to adjust other components such as black levels and especially clarity in order to get the most from the X-Pro1 raw files.

It's a complex subject, and there's no preset at this time, other than in-camera

The lack of a preset workflow for X-Pro1 raw files is a major component of peoples 'issues' with the file post processing

ACR sucks for detailed green subjects. You can see in the samples I used - it's almost as if ACR is blurring the color information. Leaves and needles become monotone. Tweaking black point and clarity won't help that.

I believe the WC issue is overblown, but you aren't helping the "cause" by claiming it doesn't exist and posting down-sized images (though beautiful) of non-foliage scenes as proof.
