See my notes on processing RAW files from the Fuji X10.

I have struggled just like you on sharpening my X10 raws and until further potential fix by Adobe, I have adopted the following strategy for sharpening.
Sharpening : 30 to 40, 40 being a real maximum Radius : 0.7 - no changes Detail : 30 to 40, just like sharpening 40 is a real maximum to avoid blotches.
Now as options am also using Luminance noise reduction this way :
Luminance : 15 - a good smart amount that reduces/scrubs the X10 blotches, but this low amount keeps details.
Luminance detail : 75 - this helps to keep maximum details whilst removing sufficient noise Luminence contrast : 75 - ditto
Luminence noise reduction is useful to remove the "grain" generated by the sharpening ; am using it optionally when I don't like the silver-like grain generated by the sharpening above. The Luminence 15 can also be decreased but this is a very good amount which doesn't erode too much the sharpening above.
DIGLLOYD: Though I have not tried these suggested settings, I did experiment with variants before, and it was clear to me that workarounds were just that— RAW Developer 1.9.3 does a far superior job.
I’ve sent the X10 back for now— I don’t need extra hassles in my workflow. I’ll let the dust settle and try again in a few months if Adobe fixes this.
