Re: How well does Fuji's Raw File Converter work compared to third party?

What are you using now?

Most of the time I use Adobe Camera Raw.  As mentioned, it has really improved with Fuji RAW handling, especially if you leave sharpening to downstream.

SilkyPix does do a good job at RAW, conversion, but then I take the TIFF into Photoshop for real editing.

While I'm here, I'll give a shoutout to Topaz, especially Sharpen AI and DeNoise AI.  They do a great job. DeNoise has sharpening in it as well, almost making Sharpen redundant. Their GigaPixel product also is great.  I have files taken with a Canon G2, my first digital camera, and running the files through GigaPixel allows me to print a size larger than just using the native resolution.
