Henry,

yours is a nice thought analysis, but I think that the point here is a tad more related to marketing.

I don't consider the Oly offer for now, since I'm not eyeing the m43 world. I think the Fuji offer is a more premium one, with a luxurious (almost only) selection of primes, while the Sony one is more oriented for the bang-for-the-buck purchase.

That's it. I'm sure that the price difference between the X-T1 + XF35mm vs A6K + Sigma 30mm is not justified by the IQ difference.

But for some users, the Fuji combo will give the feel of a more upscale object. In the end, here there's lots of people that go crazy for gear (regardless they're actual enjoyment of their cameras) so the "ownership pride", which is huge in the Fuji community, is a kind of weak among the Sony users.

I know that the Sony platform allows to use Zeiss made (or licensed) lenses, but man, those are running really expensive.
