I do not pretend to be a prophet nor do I pretend to know about any unique agreement between Fuji and COSTCO.

I do not sit in in their negotiations as apparently you do. I do not know the return rate of Fuji cameras that apparently you do.

I do not pretend to know what cameras Fuji is planing to make or not make next as apparently you do.

It is all very simple once you remove the fanboy goggles, you don't have to be privy to any inside information. All you have to do is know Fuji products and their release cycles and prices (and regularly visit or follow Costco camera section since you zero in on that), note which models get discontinued without the successor in sight, and know a little bit about the company (very predictable) business strategy. Also note the rapid expansion of X forum, shrinkage of this forum, 50% in yearly decline in non-premium compact camera sales, Fuji's lack of innovation and attention to F and HS lines (all goes to X products) and you would see the writing on the wall. You also need to have some brains (or open mind) to be able to process all this.
