For raw files, use rfraw for conversion.
Krita should be good for all other purposes.

btw, GIMP can not do more than 8 bit colour depth.

Here is a para from http://www.gimp.org/docs/userfaq.html
When can we see 16-bit per channel support (or better)?

For some industries, especially photography, 24-bit colour depths (8
bits per channel) are a real barrier to entry. Once again, it's GEGL
to the rescue. Work on integrating GEGL into GIMP will begin after 2.4
is released. Once that work is completed, GIMP will support 16 bits
per channel. If you need such support now and can't wait, cinepaint
and krita support 16 bits per channel now.

It should be noted that for publishing to the web, the current GIMP
release is good enough.

Best regards,

Offer projects. Get your work done. Groom your future employees !!
