I have neither of the cameras in question and am presently not using Adobe raw converters (used them in the past) - so I have no clue whether the issue with the E-620 and E-30 got ever fixed.
I understand from discussions I followed on other web-sites that Capture One is one of or the best regarding sharpness. Some time ago I had a Capture One license and it was amasing what detail this pulled from E-300 files. Since moving into the Mac environment I am using Aperture. Mostly for its colours.
No doubt that there used to be problems with Adobe Camera RAW /Lightroom and some Olympus RAW camera formats - the E-400 for example. often resulted in what looked like micro fractures in the fine detail of an image.
But we're now on the 7th generation of Adobe Camera RAW. I haven't noticed any problems with Adobe's RAW conversions for a long time.
