I truly wish they would at least give the option of a Bayer X-E2 or a XP1.

I expect/hope Fuji will pay very close attention to how well their new bayer camera at the low end does, then consider their options if it turns out the bayer sensor is "close enough" in the eyes of the market. Then they can worry about "confusing the customer" with multiple sensors instead of worrying about "scaring off Lightroom users" with Xtrans.

Otherwise, I don't think there's much wrong with Fuji's cameras. In a few months they'll have all the basics in place for the enthusiast market: good range of bodies, set of primes, short/medium/long zooms, macro, portrait, a modest flashgun. They can go after pros with a weatherproof body, a couple of sealed f/2.8 zooms, and grown-up flash.

Their problems seem to be more marketing, distribution, and stock control (e.g. apparently launching the X-E2 with a ton of unsold X-E1s in stock).
