Re: Full frame camera

All we know is that the answer is 'no' today and that Fuji execs have said that they aren't going to market one in the near future. But this is business. Fuji will follow the money toward FF IF it makes economic sense for them to do so.

One is reminded of the time some years back when Nikon execs didn't actually say that there would never be a Nikon FF, but made it very easy to believe that they were wholly committed to APSC and FF was nowhere in sight. Things change.

Many respondents in this thread have referred to the fact that Fuji doesn't have any FF lenses. People should not under-estimate optical companies' ability to manufacture multiple mounts. Almost every company already has multiple mounts - we tend to think here of still photography mounts, but to these must be added lenses for movie cameras, video, TV, security cameras, industrial lenses and any number of optical instruments. Modern CNC machining makes it far easier to design and make them than yester-year. Just have a look at the myriad of small Chinese companies making adapters for the mirror-less market. They're setting up and making adapters for almost every lens to almost every mount - literally hundreds of models. Fuji would start like Sony did (which was like Fuji did with the X system)...... release a camera with a limited suite of good lenses and expand from there.
