    Which Post Processing Software do you intend to use with your new X100s? I've been an Aperture user for the past several years but wonder if Apple will get around to supporting the X100s and what will the conversions look like? I've used Capture One in the past but I have not tried the most recent version. Unfortunately I'm not a LR fan. Just can't get into the work flow. What are your thoughts?

    When / If I get the X100s (replace or in addition to my X100), I will continue using Lightroom and CS5 for my editing and then Silver Efex Pro for B&W conversions.

    These are proven packages for me for all my images so no reason to change from what I am happy with - there is nothing out there that is dramatically better (certainly not for me)

    I share your opinion about LR. Lots of people like it and it's from Adobe, but I never felt like I had much control over it. I'm sure it's the user and not the software, but not all users fit with all software. I was intending on looking hard at Capture One, but after seeing the quality of the XF1 JPGs, I'm not in a rush to spend money to shoot raw. I'd be curious if anyone uses the new CO with these new sensors.

    I would be in no hurry with RAW on the X100s. I'm sure the jpgs will be fabulous and we can all wait and see how the RAW conversion software shakes out. Don't forget in-camera RAW conversion.

    JPG is fabulous on the X100, I imagine it will be even better on the X100S.

    I always shoot JPG and RAW. All of the RAW converters for the X-trans sensor do not yet do it justice.

    I just d/l'ed a trial of Capture One (7.02). I'll play with that for a while.

    I really want to like Aperture. I am an iPhoto user, but have tended toward the Adobe products... Keep trying Aperture and keep not "clicking" with it.

    Once support is offered, I will use he same software as with the other X-Tans cameras: SP5 > internal RAW converter > C1 > LR > RPP. I am also beta testing AccuRaw.

    Let us know how that goes. Some folks are saying Sandy is doing a good job with AccuRaw,

    Sandy is always doing a great job, just read his insightful blogs. ;) While AccuRaw would always be a niche application, who knows who might be interested in licensing his demosaicing code?

    I intend to stay with LR, with occasional exports to Photoshop for specialised tweaking. I'll just shoot RAW+jpeg until the software catches up with the sensor technology. Fuji jpegs aren't really a compromise, as long as I don't blow the highlights too far.
