No.

Main reason to me is size/weight of fast lenses made for FF. Body might be compact, but fast and good lenses are not.

The Fuji X system has the perfect size/weight/quality/IQ combination to fit my requirements. Having said that, I would consider the X-pro successor in APS sensor size of course. In FF: absolutely not.

I am happy with my system and try to focus on my ability to use it instead of hoping for more pixels. The race for pixels is over for me, however I would consider a weather sealed body, better/faster AF, better focus peaking, better framing in OVF, different tripod thread location, better access to card/battery, better battery life and wi-fi access.

If such a package comes with 24 M pixels, I won't complain (as long as noise and DR do not suffer), but the increased number of pixels is not my goal.
