why did they put that same old sensor in it, they really should have developed an update 21 or 24mp sensor, I wouldn't buy an X-T1 because the sensor is likely to be replaced with in a year.

This is no different to the Nikon DF using the same sensor as the D4, the D4 sensor isn't great and caused many Nikon users to switch over to Canon

Why do you want more MP? Do you crop by 200% regularly?

See this thread below. An x100s shot ( same 16mp sensor ) was printed to a size of 80 feet /24metres.

It covered the side of a museum.

Here: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52837127

It was "only" 16mp.

Do you just think that a big number is better than a smaller number?

Why do you think more MP is better? Or maybe you just don't know what you are talking about?

I did see the photo that was printed to 80/18 feet, as for detail I didn't see anything overly impressive, where you amazed that a photo from an APS-C could be printed to such a size?

I made no point of cropping or print size in my original post, the fact is that the sensor is two years old and is in need of an update, you can point to examples all you want but the fact is that the X sensor has been surpassed by others with greater DR.
