Now the game has changed, if I was going to star over I would buy the xt1.

Don't be fooled by fanboys and Fuji-insider reviewers, shouting "wow, what a fast camera and AF!" about X-T1. They did the same when X-E2 came out, and now X-E2 is a snail as they say.
Just take a look at different AF tests on YouTube, and real user experience - AF in dim/low light conditions is much slower, than current m4/3 offerings.
I think Fuji need 1 or 2 more camera generations to catch up with m4/3 in terms of speed.

If you don't need fast AF - yes, Fuji is great camera, with great color, lenses, firmware updates and etc. But don't expect it to be on pair with EM1/GX7 in terms of AF performance.
Also, EM1 IBIS is very welcome addition (non of Fuji's primes are stabilized).
