I’ve read a lot of complaints about how Lightroom renders RAW (RAF) Fujifilm files. I think the main complaint is that the sharpening causes little squiggly worms. I didn’t notice until I looked for them. After that I think I panicked and overcompensated. For a while I was just dropping the sharpening to zero. Luckily I realized that was dumb. I thought it’d be interesting to compare here, where I view the images at a larger size than on Instagram.

The first image has the default sharpening (40). I dropped the sharpening on the second image to 0. They’re the same images, just different crops.
