But given the recent sales reports over at fuji rumors, does anyone else worry about the potential for Fuji to throw in the towel and abandon this venture?

Having only sold 700,000...seems really low.

I love my x100s and x-e2, but I'm worried that if they continue to not make money they'll withdraw.

It's a tough market to crack, and I hope they fair better in 2014.

Thoughts?

If Fuji drop the X sensor and use a bayer one instead then they have a future, at the moment a great camera and lens systems is being ruined by the X sensor

No. It isn't.

Yes, it is, the X sensor is the biggest arguing point of the whole system, some like it and some don't but many put up with it because they like the cameras and lenses.

Yup I agree. I absolutely love using my fuji x camera. I like pretty much everything about it except the processing issues that X trans brings. x trans isn't an issue so much when you're editing a handful of images here and there, but if you have to do more than 50 at a time for events or weddings it is a pain and slows things down. I can live with the processing stuff for general photo needs, but it's too time consuming when trying to meet a deadline. As much as I want the 23mm and 56mm I'm holding to see how the sensor stuff shakes out.

Ming Thein articulated it way better than me in his X-E2 preview a month ago.
