My views exactly. There are so many sweeping statements about how poor LR is and how superior PN & ID are that it's become received wisdom in this forum. But I can't support these views in my own testing. Yes, there is sometimes more detail, but I'm yet to find an image of mine where it makes a practical difference, and contrary to some, I prefer LR noise reduction and colour rendering at high ISO. I also agree with other posts that the PN interface and workflow leaves a lot to be desired.

I've found very significant differences between the two, particularly in terms of detail, absolutely no question. Photoninja is usually a clear winner, but occasionally there will be issues that are dealt with better by LR / ACR.

But the original question was whether Lightroom supports RAW files from the XT-1. The answer is it doesn't, but I'm sure it's only a matter of weeks, given that the new version of ACR is imminent with its proper dedicated X processing.

Meanwhile you can use DNG format.
