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

I have done side by side tests with my D800E. The D800E is significantly sharper and more resolution but the gap is narrowed by some of the Fuji better lenses like the 35mm F1.8.

The major gap is more nightscape shots that I do like 30 seconds wide open and the D800E is in another league there at ISO3200/6400. XE1 is the best of the mirrorless for that type of shot but is lacking a bit behind the full frame.

In other areas its performance is better like white balance is superior as is jpeg colour.

D800E brightness, speed, AF performance and overall response is in another league completely and is extremely snap and pop but the Fuji is constantly being improved whereas the D800E is static.
