I don't get it.

Unless you are strapped for cash and REALLY can only afford to keep one system, why would you give up all the opportunities lost by shooting a mirrorless camera only?

While I find myself more and more grabbing the Fuji, there are still situations that it comes no where near my D800e.

But these "opportunities" don't interest everyone.

In short, if someone sold all their Nikon kit for an Xe1, its because the Xe1 did everything THEY needed to do with a camera. Simple.

I agree. I think many are able to replace their FF Canon DSLR with a Fuji APS-C X camera because they never needed a FF weather sealed DSLR in the first place. Two years ago, a Rebel probably would have done everything they needed and it would have been smaller/lighter. Now they can trade their FF for something much cooler than a Rebel.
