How 2 avoid Lightroom lens corrections with Fuji X RAF files?

Hello,

I use a Fuji X-E1 and use different Raw converters, not having decided yet which one to use ultimately. Lightroom is not bad in it's latest version 5.3 (?), however I have noticed that unlike PhotoNinja it always automatically applies distortion correction for the Fuji lenses, which apparently is written directly into the Raw files (probably to hide the fact how little some of them are optically corrected).

Question: How can I transform a RAF file to DNG in another program (maybe free?) in order to convert in Lightroom with all it's possibilities, but without the undistortion?

The distortion control introduces lots of unsharpness towards the edges of the files.
I have already asked in a german forum, but no answer so far...

Thank you

Georg
