Latest rumour X200 - 35mm sensor - 24 MP - from FR
Feb 11, 2014

Looks like Fuji may run the X100 play book again - come out with a parts bin project to test the market - if it sells well - move it into the inter-changeable lens model line-up.

Sony did the same thing with the RX1 and came out with the Alpha-7/7R soon after.

I really didn't think the RX1 did that well in the market at 3K a pop from talking with my dealer but that's only a sample of 1 and I don't have Sony's internal sales numbers.

It must have done well enough for Sony to dump the A-mount and switch to the E-mount.

Of course, what does that say about the future of the X-mount? I believe that Fuji has already stated the image circle of the X-mount cannot accommodate a 35mm sensor, so a new mount would have to created to use 35mm sensors. The old X-lenses will not be able to be mounted for a cropped image circle like the E-mount or the Nikon DX lenses.

Interesting times we live in.
