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.

The Trans marketing advantage will be lost after lots of reviews state the obvious. The Trans cameras will be perceived as more expensive and less capable.

They cannot change it. It will be a marketing suicide.

It's hard to make a quick turn, people will feel they were duped by previous claims. Fuji did a big mistake by releasing X-M1 and X-A1 identical bodies with different sensors. That made it possible to evaluate the Trans vs Bayer claims. They themselves created this predicament.

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?

Actually Sony's NEX cameras are really good. I did a number of NEX vs X-E1 tests and Sony in most of them was a winner. The weak spot of Sony is the lack of good lenses, the latest Zeiss was a big disappointment. The Trans sensor is Fuji's imaginary advantage, the only real advantage Fuji has is some good lenses, and they should build on that.
