To the group -- so if I migrate to the Fuji system -- do I become a JPG shooter ?

You can become whatever you wish.

Because I really don't want to just shoot JPG.

You don't have to. Where did you get this idea, BTW?

I'm really puzzled at how Fuji is getting all kinds of praise for their hardware but their software support / interpolation, whatever you want to call it is being ignored or forgotten, or maybe better said forgiven !?

In fact, Fuji is getting more praise for its excellent software than its hardware. It's recognized that Fuji's in-camera raw processor is top notch, whereas the CFA is getting mixed responses.

I really like to shoot raw.

We got that.

It seems many successful Fuji shooters have some kind of hybrid workflow - does anyone know if this is going to get better -- soon ?

Others have given you their stance. Anything is possible from all-raw to all-JPEG.

I'm surprised that it has taken so long - given Fuji's crazy success and passionate user base.

Raw processing for the X-Trans sensor has been very good for quite some while now. There shouldn't have been any surprises for about a year already.

I was a Nex-7 shooter -- but color rendition didn't please me, and now I'm a Nikon V1 shooter - but would really like to delve into Fuji with the great lens selection, and the XT1 looks really nice.

Thoughts ?

You'll have fun.
