Interesting tidbit from the recent Fujifilm rep interview:

Q: "Do you want to compete against professional full frame cameras?"

Toshihisa Iida: "Inevitably yes, we have to compete against full-frame. The professional market is very segmented, and for example for sports photography I think the X-T1 is already competitive. So yes, I’d like to challenge full-frame."

At least one rumour site is interpreting this as "Fuji will release a FF camera," but that's not what he said - he said "challenge full frame," which could mean "Our aps-c Xtrans sensor is what we consider our 'challenge.'"

I wonder what he exactly meant, or even if he possibly meant to be wilfully obtuse.

I think he means the latter, and to me it doesn't look that easy to misinterpret his statement unless you're really hankering for a FF Fuji camera. Looking at the high-iso X-trans samples you can find all over the internet my guess is they probably already do compete quality wise, if not in other terms (sales, brand visibility?)
