What do you use for post-processing?
8 months ago

I have been a Nikon shooter for many years but now feel like switching over to a mirrorless system for the shorter and normal focal lengths. I'll keep my V1's which go well with my 300 f/4 AF-S for wildlife.

My issue is I do lots of bike touring and my cameras cannot be large; size is a huge issue for me. And because of dust I cannot change lenses on the fly. So I basically need to carry 3 complete camera/lens systems with me, to tackle any shooting opportunity I find.

The Nikon 1 system has stagnated; I don't know what they were (weren't) thinking with that. Nikon had such an opportunity and just blew it.

This new Fuji X-T1 really interests me. A couple questions: I have always shot raw and only used Nikon Capture NX2 for PP. I want to continue shooting raw in Fuji so what software do you use? I have never used Photoshop and don't look forward to learning a new program. Plus Thom Hogan suggests there are lots of irritating licensing issues with Adobe right now.

Also, I hear that the Fuji lenses have lots of corrections that need to be done afterwards (barrel distortion etc.). Will these corrections be captured in the camera or will I need to get the PP to do it (with raw)?
