Don't take my word for it. Trust the Fuji X-Pert (Rico P.) who literally wrote the book on Fuji X cameras.

He said:

"It took a while, but Fujifilm finally decided to officially announce the X-A1, the long-planned sister model of the X-M1. Let’s cut right to the chase: There’s little difference between these cameras. They look very much the same, they offer the same buttons and controls, the same processor, the same operating speed/performance, the same features, the same menus, the same build, material and size, even the same 16 MP Sony sensor. Of course, there’s one minor but important difference to mention in the sensor department: The X-M1 features an X-Trans color filter array (CFA) without an anti-aliasing (AA) filter, while the X-A1 uses a conventional Bayer CFA with an AA filter (to reduce/eliminate unwanted moiré)."

Thank you for quoting Rico's text so I didn't have to. I don't know what these guys have to gain by denying what is common knowledge these days and confirmed by the guy who, yes, LITERALLY WROTE THE BOOK on the XP1 and XE1. That coupled with the fact that Fuji has no facility to build sensors after they sold theirs off, publicly I might add.
