Sony has FOUR types of lenses to deal with now: A-mount (APS-C/FF) and E-mount (APS-C/FF). They've been struggling to keep up in A-mount and in the last 3 years started two new types of lenses. Had they used the resources they spent developing SLT on their NEX line their E-mount system would be a lot better right now. Instead, buying into Sony is like buying a lottery ticket. You have a 1 in 4 chance of being picked as Sony's future.

Interesting insight.

How many lens lines does Fuji have to deal with?

That would be a grand total of: 1.

And why is that?

Because about 8 - 10 years ago they asked a bunch of professionals to take the time to analyze the market and assess the trends in technology and come up with suggestions as to what the most viable, high quality camera would be to produce.

Their response?

A compact, mirrorless system built around a unique APS-C size sensor and exceptionally high quality lenses designed to work specifically with that same APS-C size sensor.
