I'll be honest, I didn't read all of that.
Anyway, for what it's worth, here's my take on this dilemma:
If the Sony wasn't full frame you wouldn't consider it because the system is non existent compared to Fuji.
Fuji has the better system and a camera that (on paper) will do a much better job at getting photographs.
Easy decision IMO

I disagree. The Sony is by far the best mirrorless to use with millions of legacy 35mm lenses. These old FD, OM, etc primes do exceptionally well on their native sensor format.

My point is it is all in your perspective, for some the Sony is best, for others the Fuji or Samsung.

To the OP, I kept the Samsung NX over my XPro1, but new X-T1 looks enticing. I wouldn't get rid of the Samsung until we see the Samsung NX1. The 30mm is maybe closer to the 35mm than you think and much faster focusing.
