I have not had an opportunity to shoot, or even handle, an "X" cam, but there are a few instances when I think a DSLR's will prevail.

1) Underwater Photography - I do not know of a single manufacturer that has produced a dedicated underwater housing for a mirrorless camera.

2) Wildlife - 200mm just won't work, even if you were to add a 1.4x teleconverter. For some type of wildlife photography, i.e. birding, even a 500mm lens often comes up short.

3) Bad Climate - I don't believe any of the Fuji cams or lenses are weather sealed, at least thus far. I live in the tropics and have lost two Fuji "S" cams and two Tamron lenses that weren't weather sealed. If you're shooting under normal weather conditions then perhaps this isn't a concern, but excessive heat, humidity and cold might demand a sealed DSLR body.

Comments welcome!
