If you can't help then as far as Fuji X-Trans raw files are concerned your gold standard is fools gold.

P.S. In C1 and PN that file processes without a trace of that halo.

This is one of those sweeping statements that I take exception to.  I've never claimed that LR is some kind of gold standard.  I agree that other converters deliver better detail in some cases.  I just can't see that it makes a lot of practical difference for most purposes.  I think you yourself have said that LR does an acceptable job much of the time.

Yes, I can see the slight halo.  It's not easy to see.  I can just see it at 100% view.  It's clearer at higher magnifications.  I don't believe that you'd see it in a print unless it was very, very large, and certainly not in a file that was resized for the web.  So I don't consider it of practical consequence for most uses.

I think C1 also has a slight halo, but it's even harder to see unless you crank up the sharpening.

Less heat and more light please (this comment addressed to all).
