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?

Thats interesting, because I wanted to create a canvas print of 48X16 inches from my Oly EM5 shot (which I cropped from the top and the bottom to have a panorama type 3X1 shot that would correspond to 48X16) and the Costco's photo center on line said - Resolution is Too low.

Costco did print my 16MP Fuji XE2 shot at 45X30 this one, I guess there was enough resolution:
