If I were Fuji...

I would go to m43 instead of going FF !

Here is the list of reasons:

- the lenses from the APS-C format could be reused without any loss.The image covers all the sensor area whereas this is not true for the Sony FF.

How would you gain anything by using a M43 sensor rather than simply cropping the regular APS-C image?

- I would propose 2 adapters: a usual adapter, which would have the advantage to use the lens at a different equivalent focal. The 55-200 will become a 75-270, which is better for wildlife photography. The 23mmf1.4 could be used for portrait. Plus a speed booster adapter for those who want a fast lens.

Once again, how would this be preferable to simply cropping an APS-C image?

- Compatible with panasonic/Olympus lens.

not going to happen

- I personally believe that FF is overrated. This is better, I admit but the difference is going to decrease more and more. And FF does not perform better in low light, I am happy with f1.4, I have no need to go wider (or just for 1℅ of my pictures)

If you think that m43 cameras can come close to FF image quality in low light then you are insane.

- I would have 2 bodies, a more pocketable m43 and the APS-C.

- by going FF, they would just be followers.

the same thing could be said about going to m43. Also, the ONLY advantage to going with a m43 sensor is to reduced body size, and that would be negligible. As we have seen with Sony's cameras, a camera's sensor size is not much of a limiting factor when it comes to camera size.

m43 start to have stunning IQ. Even smaller sensor with RX10 is impressive...

Going to the opposite way (compared to Sony) would not be stupid. Think about the Sony Nex owners who will have to buy new lenses if they want to switch !!! Whereas m43 offers a second use for our lenses !!!

NEX users don't have to switch, the lenses will work in cropped mode or normally with heavy vignetting.

Personnaly, I would love it.
