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.

Yeah, but why would you want to use them with a smaller sensor? Other than using the telephoto lenses for extra reach, what do you gain out of it? You're using a bigger lens than necessary, and it's not even optimised for the sensor.

- 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.

You'd almost turn the 23 into a 50mm. Why? What do you gain from it that you couldn't get from the 35 1.4 on an APS-C body anyway? You'd have to buy a whole new body to use the camera this way, so at that price you might as well just get the lens.

- Compatible with panasonic/Olympus lens.

I'll give you this one.

- 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)

Right, but why should they spend money on a different format at all?

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

It won't be terribly pocketable if you stick any lens bar the 27 on it...

- by going FF, they would just be followers.

As opposed to just following Olympus and Panasonic?

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

It sounds like you want a second m4/3 body to complement the Fuji. You should just get one. Yes, in an ideal world it would be nice if all cameras were compatible with all lenses, but some things just aren't meant to be.
