Xtrans provides Fuji with marketing advantage so it won't go anywhere even though many of us wish the new X cameras came with bayer.

They cannot change it. It will be a marketing suicide. If they switch to bayer the marketing advantage will be lost. It will be just another ilc with same 16mp Sony sensor. How would u differentiate ur self from Sony then? That u have Fuji colors? That u have better lenses? This would be lost on 95% of targeted audience. Then u would compete strictly on price.

On the other hand if u put xtrans in, ur salesperson can say: this camera has special sensor while that other one has a regular sensor. We r different. Consumer says oh that's different and must be better
