I understand that the XTrans sensor requires unique RAW conversion algorithms but I wonder why Fuji didn't at least use the DNG standard for RAW. At least Adobe would have a leg up on the RAW conversion instead of starting from scratch.

It's stupid that Canon/Nikon/Sony/Fuji etc all use proprietary RAW formats....at least Leica uses DNG.

I always wondered why a TIFF option was not given in addition to the JPEG.

TIFFS may be large but they have far more information available for PP than a JPEG and it is a standard format. My Nikon D3s bodies output TIFF as an option, for example.

At least that would have given a standard format image that had wide compatibility where PP was required until RAW support came along.
