because m43 is already very crowded - too many manufacturer sharing the cake already. Oly and Pana being the most important ones. What can Fuji win there? Sell a few lenses (they have to build them first) and a few "we too" cameras. The Panasonic XG-7 (??) looks like a FUJI X - the retro thing is already there in m43...

I am not sure if Fuji can win in going FF, but m43, definately no. If they don't go either way, they will have to further develop their lens system (which is already starting to look complete), and update their sensors and cameras.

Probably the best way...

You are probably right but only because it's too late. In fact Fuji was expected from the beginning at the m4/3 consortium, but in order to protect it's stuff it took the wrong decision. Why?

Because m4/3 is showing every day it can do v. small lenses with no sacrifice in quality (we are expecting a Pancake like Leica 15mm soon, we already have another five, including zooms).

Following what I take a temporary trend others are flocking to mirrorless FF.

So APS mirrorless , Fuji, is falling between two chairs, with its not so small, not so cheap lenses. These are the market forces at work.
