Ridiculous Fuji X20 Claims

This is from Fuji's presentation.  Several things stick out here.  First, who makes a 12MP 1.5" sensor?  Canon has a 1.5" sensor but it is 14MP.  Next, this quick-n-dirty graph shows the old 2/3" EXR to be VERY close to the 20MP 1" Sony sensor in terms of SNR.  Well, that is completely untrue as shown by the DXOmark comparison between the RX-100 and FinePix XS1. The RX-100 is fully 1EV ahead of the old sensor in SNR.  Finally, this shows the new 12MP Xtrans to show better resolution than the 1.5" sensor and the 1" 20MP sensor.  This seems ridiculous and is pretty unlikely.  Furthermore, the new tiny X-trans is supposedly SIGNIFICANTLY better in terms of SNR than the Sony 1", also a ridiculous claim.

A lot of people are going about on forums preaching this as gospel, despite the flaws that are obvious regarding the comparison of the old sensor and the larger sensors.  People ought to temper their expectations, given the bold and oft-short-falling claims of Fuji in the recent past.
