Fuji XT-2 v2 firmware and Lightroom RAW profiles

Something weird is going on with the Fuji XT-2 and the new v2 firmware. The new firmware allows you to capture raw files when using the film simulation bracket. Here are two samples of capturing RAW + Fine JPEG. The RAW rendering by Adobe Lightroom 2015.10 Camera Raw 9.10 looks completely different to the out of camera JPEG. The exposure is much darker and the colours don’t come close to the JPEG. [Click for large size]. Compare these with the previous firmware version here.
Update 4 May 2017: It seems the issue is with the Dynamic Range setting in the XT2. If shot on DR-Auto, this setting is not recognised by Lightroom which results in an underexposed rendering of the RAW. There’s a discussion here.
