Lightroom Fails Fujifilm Again: Fujifilm X-T5 X-Trans V HR vs Fujifilm X-T30 X-Trans IV

There are a few reports of Fujifilm X-Trans IV being higher image quality than X-Trans V HR, so fujistas did some investigation and discovered that, once again, Lightroom is handling X-Trans files in a questionable way. The image quality of RAW files from the Fujifilm X-T5 is noticeably softer than the X-T30 when opened in Lightroom, but that is not the case when using other RAW editors. Thankfully there are numerous other photo applications on the market that handle X-Trans files, and I have listed some of them below.
