Any of you guys tried Apple Aperture for X-Trans raw conversion ?. It's mind blowing. Lightroom still have an edge in noise reduction at super high iso's, but the colors and the way Aperture renders the .raf files, it just looks incredible, better colors and tonal rendition of any camera I ever tested, including full frames.

Played with X-Trans files for quite some time, but after seeing Aperture rendering, I was left speachless, best looking images I ever saw from a digital camera.

I've became a Fuji fanatic over night :)) can't wait to get my hands on my XE-2

It does look better at default in terms of colour and contrast, as does Capture One. It's worth mentioning though that this is less of an issue with Lightroom's ability to handle RAF files, and more due to the fact that Lightroom just renders everything very conservatively at default, as DPR notes:

I use Lightroom for quickly processing most shots because I prefer its results at higher ISOs, because it runs faster than any other converter on my laptop, and because it has a very intuitive workflow. For low ISO shots I really want the best detail from, I run it through Photo Ninja.
