But I myself I'm still a happy Fuji camper.

This has been discussed before.  IMO, the only real take-away from that article is that you shouldn't set shadows & colors to +4 when shooting high ISO. With those settings, of course the OOC JPEG colors are wrong.

If the author wants to be taken seriously he should re-process those raws in-camera and set shadows & color to zero.  Of course even then the colors will be different from a raw processed in Darktable, due to Fuji's "secret" film simulations.

I do agree with one thing in the article - it was a waste of two evenings.
