Been REAL rainy and total overcast here, supposed to get down to 66degF here tonight!
In the "dog days" of summer, crazy!
Though I like the nice cool weather, the light has been rather dim, especially late after werke, sigh...
Enough excuses!

While the Fuji JPEG engine is incredible, and I used it until Aperture support for RAW was implemented-- I find that my output from RAW via Aperture or Iridient is a significant improvement compared to the JPEGS. This is particularly so with DR, microcontrast, and sharpness control.

This was generally the reverse when I used the ACR or C1 RAW engines. In many cases, camera JPEG was better and I couldn't match or exceed it in a total way. But some of this is down to my high familiarity with Aperture after leaving ACR almost a decade ago.

Good to know. I recently switched to mac and debating on whether or not to get Aperture.

Some really nice shots on this thread. I have bought and sold way to much gear over the last few years and I'm finding more and more that my Fuji XE-1 camera is the camera I'm picking up to shoot with most of the time. The 35 1.4 lens is amazing and I have a 14 2.8 on the way. File size is just right and taking photos and not having to really spend a lot of time processing them is a huge plus. Colors, exposure, and white balance are usually pretty spot on. Couple from this morning..

Do keep in mind that Apple has really fallen behind Adobe (Aperture vs Lightroom) when it comes to available tools-- and seems to be taking forever for the 3-to-4 (or X) upgrade. Apple does keep the RAW support relatively current, and does implement significant things in point-updates. But no lens profiles for distortion correction? That should have been implemented ages ago.

I still prefer Aperture for workflow-- by far. And I like the conversions best.

Yes, agree. After reading up some more, I see a ton of complaints due to apples lack of updates for aperture.

Thank you...

I also strongly prefer Aperture, but Apple has ignored it for so long that I uninstalled it. My love for Adobe can fit in a very small place, so *any* decent competition would make me switch, but Apple's pro-treatment has me frustrated.

Got my hands on a 14mm 2.8 last week. Been enjoying playing with it.

Michael49 "wrote: Nice Golden" Thanks and same to you as well!

MagicNikon: Great shots with the 14 2.8. I just picked one up on the buy/sell and it arrives on Monday. I had one rented one for a vacation and was really impressed with it. Going to NYC next weekend and looking forward to giving it a good amount of time.
