... but for best ease of processing and excellent print quality LightZone is the best thing so far.
ease of processing!?!? things must be inverted in the southern hemisphere.
maybe the supplied x-e1 tone curve is junk (i don't see anywhere to adjust the tone curve in the 'normal' way), but all my images look absolutely horrible in lightzone, requiring an export as 16 bit tiff to photoshop for further editing and 'fixing.' quadruples the storage requirement and easily quadruples the time to process images. i was willing to put up with this for dcraw because at least you could automate the creation of 'neutral' tiff files and then work them through acr/ps in the normal way.
govin the inability to quickly get at good basic tonal adjustments coupled with the interface being really slow and not-very intuitive, i can't see using this. but i agree with you that someday someone (really, adobe) will probably get it right.
