it can be fixed in PS as a raw file.

Honest question: Isn't it possible that he clipped the red highlights completely, meaning he can't recover them in raw?

Absolutely.

Iliah Borg says that it is <very> unusual for red to blow before green in the Raw data.

I'd be very interested to hear more about this. Does this apply to any sensor, or only the Fuiis (which ones). Anecdotally, I see more problems with the red channel in people's photography than with any other channel. Someone with a color checker card and the ability to create uniform lighting could probably do a simple experiment to ascertain the saturation characteristics of a given sensor. Any info?
