Fuji are a business and businesses are supposed to make profit and grow.

So far they have done an excellent job of growing in a crowded area of the market. They will analyse everything they can to find a balance that allows them to continue developing new products, increase sales, and increase profits.

The allure of Full Frame (to business) is that it is a more expensive product, which normally means more profit.

There is little benefit to Fuji in creating a m43 system, they already have a competing product which many think is superior.

Maybe they would look into lens adapters so their excellent lenses could be used on m43, making the transition to a Fuji system easier.

Camera companies are not trying to make great cameras, they are trying to make great profits, the cameras themselves are just a necessary evil.

You like to act cynical?

The truth is that no mirrorless company has been making a profit so you are just making up things?

At the moment they are trying to establish market share, which is different from profits.

I take Sony's move for a desperate one, because it couldn't really outdo m4/3. The same goes for Fuji and APS mirrorless.

You clever people should ask yourselves why no one has been able to displace m4/3, but why third parties are flocking to it all the times. Why you can have lenses of all sizes and prices.

You live under delusions and legends, while your technology (focus, IBIS, per pixel sharpness) lags behind just like Sony.

People are not blind, that's what they buy. Sony 35mm might be a short lived experiment, just like the others. Follow the lenses.

Am.

Sorry if I've offended you in some way, I was just trying to look at the question from Fuji's perspective.

Is there any part of my post that you think is incorrect?

I have no knowledge of the companies profits, but I do not claim to.

You make a good point about market share, with so many companies doing this there is a tremendous amount of development an innovation which is great for the consumer.

I think you've made the assumption that I don't like m4/3, you are mistaken, I'm glad it exists, it's not for me, but it has a positive effect on the whole industry.

I also guess that you think I have some allegiance to Canon (from my gear list) I don't.  I'm planning on selling some of my gear to buy a Fuji x100s.  But I'm not buying it because it is a Fuji Camera, but because it is a camera I'll enjoy using.
