Re: If Sony releases a FF Nex what will this do to X sales?

To add to it the rumours and these seem substantial and very likely given the AF system of the A99 is that Sony has developed a PDAF sensor system much like the Canon 70D's. Canon appears to have gotten to market first.

So what if that FF Nex had the first proper mirrorless AF system that was equal or better than DSLR in all ways?

That certainly sweetens the deal and seems to be the one last reason people get a DSLR over mirrorless - the AF is better in DSLRs. That seems to be about to change. Even if only Canon releases an updated EOS M mirrorless with their new dual pixel sensor tech for super AF performance. Someone is going to win big market share here.

Fuji's best hope on good AF performance is if Sony sells these new super AF sensors to them for use in X series. I imagine they will.
