I think you need to be a tad kinder on those new to the XE1 and the RAW issues. A good few are genuine and not trolling. I'm one of them - I've been lurking here researching whether to get an XE1 and which lens, etc, etc. If I do buy one, I'll probably be like others new to the X series in that I'd be coming from another brand. People should do some research - sure - but amongst the months of threads on the subject there are many conflicting opinions. And things evolve....... What's wrong with asking forum members for the up-to-the-minute situation with RAW and the latest workarounds or SW to address them?

The 'many conflicting opinions' that are apparent here are not necessarily objective.  This is DPreview, some come here to entertain themselves, peep at pixels, and prognosticate about specifications. This is what they value about photography. They may or may not make pictures. But they love to stir the pot. Some have speculated that they are bored adolescents who enjoy melodrama.

In my view, DPreview forums are a poor place for researching photo tools. Signal to noise here is poor. When it comes to raw conversion, from my tests, much of the criticism is overly negative and based primarily on pixel peeping, not print making.
