Is EXR something which primarily benefits only smaller sensors? I see that Fuji doesn't use it on their larger sensors - is there a reason for that?

I don't really know ... I think the division building the X100 came up with the X-Trans and that shut out EXR. Plus, it is hard to push half res on high end cams, so I think it mainly appeals to tiny sensors where DR is a huge challenge. As we know, the EXR sensors deliver blue skies far better than other pinheads ... but ... we also know that they are all catching up.

Thanks for the explanation. I guess there's no answer outside the Fuji sensor design department that is for certain.

It's nice to say that nice pictures are nice.
