I have not shot RAW since 2005 because I have no need to, such is the sublime quality of the Fuji jpegs.

Are people in this thread seriously suggesting with the X-Trans version II we can no longer shoot ISO1600 and above and get the famous Fuji skin tones and sublime true-to-life tonaility and color rendering all of us are use to??

And if that's what we want then are people saying we all have to start labouring away for hours and hours and hours handling monsterous file sizes and post processing our brains out in front of a computer? Is that what people are seriously saying?

If it is then wow, talk about going backwards.

Could be time to grab another X-E1 or even hunt around for a good used S5Pro so I can continue to enjoy instantly out of camera what others may have to spend hours upon hours trying to achieve through post processing!!!!!!

I know you don't read every response in threads, so you may have missed something important here.

The issues with the latest Fuji cameras are with its JPEG engine, not with the sensor. If Fuji went back to the way it dealt with high-ISO images the way the X-Pro1 or X-E1 deals with them, the problem would go away. You can also shoot raw and avoid the issues.
