I'm starting to look at the X100F now that it's popping up new for less than a grand. Still supported.
I am not sure what is so special about X-trans that it can't output as DNG like Leicas. But Fuji sticks with RAF. Because reasons. If I can say one good thing about Leica, it's that when the format is DNG, it is always compatible. I can open an M10 Monochrom image on a Mac or in Lightroom with zero issues.
Iridient and Silkypix (and DxO Optics for that matter) are not good asset management tools. Fuji doesn't benefit from selling this software, and it's unclear why we've been treated to a decade of this except corporate eccentricity.
