For professionals there is still a better lens selections for sports/wildlife and the auto focus is still better with professional dlsr's over mirror less at the moment. The longest auto focus zoom that can be used at present is the 55-230mm and that has a pretty slow speed so this area definitely needs to be addressed.  It's good that Fuji are actually doing something about the wider end of the lens selection as well. Also in the lens department there aren't many third party manufacturers making fast auto focus lenses for Fuji which can and will put some people off buying into the system.
I've just bought my first Fuji (XM1) and really enjoying it at the moment. My main camera is the Nikon D7100 which I love. I'm actually waiting for either the xpro-1 or xe-2 to eventually drop then I'll invest more into Fuji. The XT-A does look great but at the price it's coming out (and it's probably worth it) I'll be waiting a while yet before I get it.
There is certainly a market for both dslr and mirrorless systems and it'll be interesting to see over the next few years how this will all pan out.
