As long as you shoot RAW...Sony's JPEG engine sucks compared to Fuji.

To be honest I'm keeping an eye on things over at sony. Rumor has it their 24mp mirror less FF is going to be in the 1600 ballpark. If I can adapt my Leica lenses to it comfortably I'm selling the X-E1 and my 18-55.

I would imagine that the sensor in the Sony is quite similar to the excellent sony made sensor in my D600 in which case I'm pretty sold on the idea.

Ah yes I shoot mostly RAW which is why I have issues with the x trans. I will definitely agree that Fuji's jpeg engine is just about the best I've seen really. I guess what I would like to see is a Bayer fuji with the same jpeg engine so it would be the best of both worlds.

Sony tested the water with RX1 and grabbed a lot of money from early adopters, now it is time to make improved system and 50% cheaper version for the rest of us.

I primary use fuji and sony now (had been pentax guy, but that ship had sailed) and almost everything on the sony rocks except the lukewarm jpeg processing. Whenever I use sony after fuji I always have the strabge need to check back on the focus because I can't believe it can find the focus that fast in almost any situation. Well, one day fuji will get there as well...
