Fujifilm X-E1 File Size with ACR

I’ve immediately run into a problem in preparing my review of the Fujifilm X-E1— Adobe Camera RAW produces nice looking results, but the files from RAW (Fujifilm RAF) are cropped vertically to 2660 pixels.

Since the X-E1 RAF file size matches the X-Pro1 RAF files exactly, this means that ACR is cropping, presumably not yet supporting X-E1 files correctly. The X-E1 files look good but open cropped to 4896 X 2660 instead of the correct 4896 X 3264.

The Silky Pix user interface takes the prize for worst ever, and my brief experiment with the latest version this evening shows much inferior sharpness to ACR (cropped as it is), so I’m unsure how I will proceed, or if I can proceed at all. Perhaps for general lens quality the cropped size will suffice, because otherwise the image quality appears to be very pleasing at a gross level, but then again the artifacting problem really dissuades me from doing any testing at all.

Workaround for the cropping problem

A reader reports that using the crop tool in ACR works around the issue. Select the crop tool and the missing areas appear; then drag the box outwards to regain the entire image.
