there may be camera makers out there that try to trump a popular offering from the competition. Sony certainly never has. They plough their own furrow as you can see from the introduction of the A900, the RXI, SLT, the Nex range and the A7000 They were groundbreakers but, sadly, groundbreaking doesn't always translate into profitability.

The Fuji releases throw into sharp relief the diffrence in customer awareness between these two companies: Fuji understand their customers and make products geared towards them.

Yes that is true. Fuji customers wanted poor and slow autofocus as well as no RAW support for many months after release. Even now, raw support isn't great. There are so many quirks and holes in the Fuji offering, you really have to want it. What they have done very well is create good image quality and a series of excellent lenses.
