Why not just keep FW updates free as Fuji has been doing? It seems to me that Fuji has worked pretty hard to continuously improve their X-series cameras to optimize their performance. They have seriously taken into consideration user feedback and made many improvements based upon that feedback. Switching to a pay-per-updated system would be a step backwards and would probably annoy a lot of users. If very much doubt Fuji is holding back on upgrades just to keep the next model more marketable. If Fuji could double the speed of their AF and squash all the "slow AF" talk, they'd sell a lot more cameras.

Fuji makes money off of selling cameras. FW improvements = better cameras = more sales. The X100 sold very well at the beginning and continued to sell well in part because Fuji kept improving the camera.
