    @stickyfiddle @ThePrettyDamned does Adobe now support Fuji RAW files? It appears to from Adobe website, but reading a lot of reviews, albeit from a few years back, which suggest that isn't the case.

    LightroomCC and mobile certainly does. Not sure which was the first of the standalone versions to support it. pretty sure LR5 didn’t.

    Agree with all the above, but... 

    If you don't need localised adjustments, I *highly* recommend trying the free capture one fujifilm edition - it doesn't, to my eyes, do a better job than Lightroom but it gets me to those results far quicker, especially with regards to colour and contrast - despite me preferring the way Lightroom works in general, it seems to take more work to get the vibrance right. Capture one has a simpler vignette tool that just works fantastically well - where the Lightroom version can get the same result with a fair bit more tweaking. 

    If you absolutely need brushes, graduated filters etc then Lightroom will be the one.

    I'm just used to the workflow in Lightroom and how to apply adjustments. Shadows, highlights, exposure are the things I correct more than saturation etc.

    That's what I mean when I talk about contrast adjustments - for sure Lightroom is fine, and if not for photoshop I'd ditch my subscription. Definitely worth a go - you'll recover shadows so much easier with capture one. 

    But again, I don't think it's better or worse - just a neat idea if you want to save money :)

  • Sharpening of Fuji RAW files is so much better in Capture One than Lightroom.

    Sit-rep.....

    17-55 is going back and I've ordered a used Fuji XT10 and 18-55 lens. Overall it's a bit more than the cost of the Canon lens. But I think I'll be much happier on my trip with the Fuji. Also, longer term, a smaller camera will probably encourage me to take it more places, and therefore take more photos.  

    I'm really impressed by reports of in-camera jpeg production in the Fuji X series. I dont really want the hassle of editing raw images if I can help it, so having good results out of the box is another thing that will encourage me to take more photos. I'll obviously have to witness the outputs in the flesh first, but can see me ditching my DSLR.

    Thanks to everyone for your help with this.

    The xt2 means I take more photos - and the jpegs are very good, sharp and good colours. You can tweak them too. But it's the size and how it looks I like the most - although not much smaller than a D7200 it really looks smaller and just feels better to use. The 80s plastic SLR thing is pretty ugly, so it's nice to have a camera that looks as nice as it performs.

    Yea i love the retro look of the X series. Reminds me very much of my dad's old Pentax SLR. 

    I agonized over whether I should get the XT1 over the XT10. Was only 100 quid difference amd i was already over budget with the lens too.  Anyway, will give me scope for upgrading

    Honestly, I went xt2 because I love photography but one of the great things about fuji is that performance is pretty consistent - I could grab an xt20 or xe3 and get the same camera, pretty much. 

    The xt10 is ace :) it's basically an xt1 with a slightly smaller body, slightly slower flash sync and no weather sealing. I don't think you'll have too much GAS!

    Honestly, I don't think you'll ever want to use your 550D again once the XT10 arrives.

    XT10 and 18-55 has arrived. I haven't used it yet, but I am really impressed with the build quality of it. I see what you mean about Fuji investing in the compact system format. And the size is perfect. MUCH happier than having to lug the DSLR around new York.

    Can't wait to give it a rip now.

    Looking forward to seeing some shots from it :)

    Me too!! 

    I'll post some up when I get back from New York. 

    I'm already gassing at the X lenses.

    Congrats.

    I love my X-T20.

    I've got very used to having such a small yet powerful camera. Recently got a very good deal on a used X-T2 but it felt way too big (despite me being a former DSLR owner and a former X-T1 owner) so I returned it. Looks like the X-T30 will be announced soon - be interesting to see how much of the X-T3 is in there.
