    I don't know what you're looking for. The X-E3 is the most recent model aside from the X-H1. It's got all of the most recent "goodies" that Fuji could fit into that little body.   I doubt we'l...

    Drake - Easily done, and I'm so glad you got it sorted! The 60mm is a great lens - one of my all-time favourites.

    Thumb grips are useful for rangefinder style Fujis but I never felt the need for my XT1/2. Because I use back focus, it actually got in the way sometimes and I wound up selling it.

    The only rangefinder I would be interested in is the GFX-50R.

    If I'm not mistaken, the number of Fujis with DSLRs style are more than the Rangefinder style ones. The last pro model was the X-Pro2, which is still a terrific camera. And, at a cheaper cost, we h...

      I doubt we'll see an X-E4 for a while yet. The X-E3 is still too new.

      Regardless, what I'm looking for is right at the end of my initial post: "zero latency and no blackout in the EVF".

      But like I said, I don't know if that's even doable in an X-E(x) body with that price range.

      Does Luminar work directly with Fujifilm original raw files?


      Yes Sir!

      I’ve tested using both .RAF as well as .DNG converted from .RAF.

      I can see a huge difference betweeen Luminar & LR/PS. Luminar is able to retain micro contrast better whereas LR/PS gets mushy and noisy.

    • Plaatje

      If it beats out Adobe, I don't know because I don't use it. I bought Luminar 2017 and did upgrade to 2018 because of their promises. But even now the lens corrections are not automatically and the in camera corrections Fuji made will not be read. Take a photo with the 18mm with vertical lines and you will see what I mean, it's really bad. I contacted them and they recognise this. Promised to change it . . .

      Don't know why it take them so long. They promise that long, long ago and still nothing changed.

      In my opinion it is important when you convert RAW files that you have the possibility to use the corrections made by the camera like Fuji wants it. 

       

      So about the RAW processing I'm not that happy.  But that's just my opinion ,YMMV..  So many photographers, so many tastes

       

      They put a lot of filters in their program and if you like them they are fine.  

      Another plus is the possibility of using LUT's. 

      So in my opinion it's a good program for editing but not that good for RAW processing.

      But all together I switched to some other programs . . .

      Oh, for I forget I used Luminar on a Mac. When I bought the first version it was Mac only.

      Hope you don't mind my reaction, I have nothing against Skylum but I thought I have to mention this.
