If you just want to process the RAW files into TIFFs then LR/PS them front here, Raw Photo Processor 64 might be a path worth looking into.

Something else I have noticed. At 100% crops I'm a bit surprised at the results the X-E1 is putting out considering it is a crop sensor and the XF35mm is hardly an expensive lens. When processed through C1 the files are sharp and clean. Just my 2 cents.

1. Thanks for your extensive testing.
2. At these gratuitous crops, it's clear to me that Capture One is doing a lot more right than Adobe.
3. It is also clear to me that the differences only matter in these because they are close up crops and viewing by "normal" people at normal viewing distances will have neglible differences.
4. I will stick with shooting JPEGs.....I just don't care enough.
5. I should definitely stay away from the Fuji area of DPreview until those pixel peepers over there quit arguing about all this.
6. I like making lists

Lists are good.

I am going to probably try out this software.

So the only thing you're doing to the files when you import to C1 and LR is adding sharpening? What sharpening settings are you using? Never used C1 before this beta so trying to figure it all out compared to LR which is my regular program.
Also, not sure about your beta copy, but mine defaults to adding 50 Luminance and 50 Color Noise reduction. And 50 Details under Noise Reduction Advanced (though not sure what exactly that does.) Do these examples have the default Noise Reduction from C1 that mine applies? Thanks.

Images on page one were just in and out with the defaults from both programs. Yes mine has values of 50 and 50 and sharpening is something like 149? I think the two 50s are more like zero, if you drop them down the photos don't look like I would expect a baseline image to look. The 149 sharpening is out of 500 or something like that.
The other images I opened and edited as I wanted in C1 first then opened up the same RAW in LR and tried to get the same results. In C1 you can sharpen the file much more before you start to get bizarre artifacts.
I know LR rather well and know how to quickly edit an image as I like, in C1 I'm still learning. If Scott Kelby is listening, a book on C1 would be greatly appreciated!

Yeah, sharpening is 140 out of 1000 on mine, with radius of .8 and Threshold of 1 as default.
Also, found this on the Phase One blog that explains the 50 and 50 default noise reduction. noise reduction sliders « The Image Quality Professor's Blog
