Oloneo is also based on dcraw so it has similar output.

The general consensus is that CaptureOne is the best option right now, but it is expensive ($300). You can download a free 60-day trial.

The best option is Silkypix bundled with the camera (and available from Fujifilm website), as it has absolutely best conversion quality, and costs nothing. TIFF files produced by Silkypix can be used by all other software, so convenience is not an issue.

RFC does a fine job with details and it is cheap, but it is the worst option when it comes to recovering highlights and shadows. Even the in-camera processor can get more DR from an image than RFC.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong with Silkypix, but I get better details with Capture One, and I find C1 more intuitive to use overall. I just wish there was a stripped down version - I don't need or want the cataloging stuff.
