Short answer: No.

Try Photo Ninja, it´s much better with Fuji Raw files than Lightroom. For comparison download Raw Files of the X-E2 from dpreview and use Lightroom 5.3. The Fuji X-T1 files work with Photo Ninja - I call it a night and day difference.

Thanks, Henry!

In the meantime I looked around a little on the web and found that a.) the XT-1 is currently NOT supported in LR5.3 and b.) that Fuji is working with Adobe to carry over the film-type settings to LR and c.) that the Adobe Camera RAW in version 8.4 RC was just released with improved support for X-Trans. It should be only a matter of weeks until there is a LR5.4...

And since I have 200.000+ photos in LR and I am generally happy with the quality of the conversion, I would like to stay with LR.

Besides that: I own NoiseNinja/PhotoNinja, I like the results and I hate the interface. Sometimes, with special shots, I step out of LR and work on them with PhotoNinja, but only when preparing FineArt Prints, etc.

Thanks again

I tried the new ACR RC in CS6 and it does look like an improvement over the previous version.  Until it's released for LR Iridient will continue to be my choice.  It has the detail of PN, but I'm really hooked on the R-L deconvolution sharpening and the many scaling methods available in the program for interpolating to large print sizes.
