It's main issue is sharpening of Fuji RAWs. It works fine on hard edges but the base threshold does not work as well on low contrast areas such as foliage. The simple solution is NOT to sharpen in LR but to buy a decent plug-in that uses deconvolution sharpening instead of USM, especially if it can be applied by brush or masking instead of universally.

Yes, foliage is often soft out of a Fuji X camera. RL deconvolution may be a solution, in which case you can use the donation-only Raw Therapee program. However, USM works too. The important thing is to use a small radius, about 0.3. If you want ro render hard edges really starkly, do another round of USM, radius 1.- 2. at a very small percentage strength.

I tried that, not as effective though. Deconvolution does a good job of enhancing local micro-contrast without producing other artefacts but you have to be sparing.
