I don't get why you compare last gen with current gen.

I was just trying to show that the gap is closing. The mirrorless offerings (A7r) are heaps better than they were three years ago. DSLRs have plateaued a bit.

I'd reserve judgement on the X-T1; there is always a shed load of hyperbole around every Fuji release, such as "worlds fasted AF" followed by disclaimer after disclaimer, "matches FF" which isn't true etc etc.

True. I have my fingers crossed. If it is very close (AF-wise) to the XE-2, I'll probably pick up another XE-1 body for dirt cheap.

The only reviews I have read about the AF are by people who work closely with Fuji, and who tend to defend every niggle and issue with the cameras, so I do take them with a pinch of salt.

True. True.

But that isn't to say I am not going to pre-order it, and try it for myself

You snake.
