But, what find is that the RAF files taken at DR100/200/400in look identical when they load-up in LR4.4, both in terms of overall exposure and blown highlights. However, if I then take all three back -2EV and / or -100 on the highlights slider, then there is a lot of detail evident in the DR200 and DR400 RAFs that cannot be recovered in the DR100 RAF. So what's happening here? It certainly seems as if the DR200/400 highlight protection is available in RAW...or did I misunderstand??

Oh, just to remind you, this is with the X20 so no EXR hardware involved.

Thanks for bringing this thread back on track!

I'm not sure about Lightroom, but I would imagine it is run by ACR.  I am using ACR 7.1 and it shows correct display levels in the preview and the histogram, according to how it was exposed.

Not sure why you are having problems.

Just got the latest RawDigger  (early) so I'll see if they have fixed the display.
