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.

Increase profits??  What profits?  You do realize that Fujifilm has NEVER reported a profitable year for it's Imaging Solutions division in over a decade?  It's just a sink hole of lost money.  Fujifilm is ONLY profitable because they have developed *alternative* businesses.  If they were still a photographic company, they would be just like Kodak.  Bankrupt.

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

Sometimes yes.  Kodak made full frame 35mm digital cameras and they were quite good too.

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.

Very true.  Sadly, Fujifilm has yet to produce any profits from their digital cameras.  A shame really as they are good cameras.  They just dont sell in the mass amount needed to produce profits.
