Excellent is stretching things a bit, it might be if it didn't take so long to do it's thing. I think that's the reason it gets trashed by so many people. I think if it was rewritten to operate a lot faster it would be used by a lot more people. It makes Sigma's raw processor look fast and that's saying something!

How long do you think it takes now to process an average Fuji 20Mp RAW using Silkypix?

I've only tried it with my X-S1 raws so far but it takes a several minutes to process a single file without doing anything too fancy. The main problem is the redraw/refresh rate at which it displays the file, this is painfully slow. That's on a Macbook with 3 Gig of ram and a dual core 2.4 Ghz processor that runs lightroom 4 at an acceptable speed (and will run CS5 at the same time without crashing). It is, without doubt, the slowest raw processor I've ever run.
