New features or bug fixes?

Fuji's incentive ought to be its profit margin, not the percent of the original price.

What profit margin? With the price point proposed above and the low volumes?.

Let's add that you seemed confused by Apple's model: since when do we have to pay for updates on OSX or iOS?

That's a curious argument you're making there. I've been using Apple computers for years, and the only free OSX update I am aware of was from 10.0 to 10.1. I'm now using 10.6.8 instead of 10.7 or even 10.8, precisely because I'd have to pay for the updates. Bug and security fixes are free, but the OP is talking about new features.

Well to me the three features proposed above look more like bug fixes, especially the AF improvements! And with iOS you actually get at least 2 major updates for free.
