God, *I* hope not! I would like it to be just like now, if you are one of those people who has to have an OVF, you get the 'Pro', and the rest of us can get the same camera without it as the X-E.

I'm with you but I also feel the people who want articulated LCD, face detection, and all this other stuff probably need to be looking at another brand.

The people who have maligned the X Trans sensor absolutely need to be looking at other cameras.

If Fuji changes all these things then they'll be no different than any other camera and I'll loose interest in a hurry.

They'll just be another run-of-the-mill brand; no different or better than any other.

If catering to a larger group of people makes you lose interest (not loose) in a camera manufacturerer you have your priorities seriously misplaced. Camera manufacturers are in it to profit, not to establish and cater to a narrow fan club.

Your argument in favor of Fujifilm moving to Bayer sensors rests upon the idea that the X-Trans sensors are in some way preventing a lot of uptake of the X system. Where do you get that idea, apart from your own (apparent) personal preference?

Anyone who knows about marketing will tell you that the key to increasing sales is to have a real point of differentiation, and then sell its advantages. That's what Fujifilm is doing and it seems to working.

Your idea of them moving closer to being the same as all the other manufacturers makes no sense in marketing terms unless the X-Trans sensor is genuinely unpopular - and I am aware of no research to show that. If you have some I'd love to see it.
