How do you think Sony will respond?

I actually think the Fuji releasing the X-T1 with the 16mp sensor helped Sony tremendously.   The X-T1 looks like a nice camera and the lenses are excellent but many people that decided to go with a NEX 7 before are going to struggle to "settle" for the X-T1's sensor.   I use that term loosely since I know that some people will reply to tell me how little difference there is and how great the Fuji sensor is, etc.   But that doesn't really change my point that it can be hard to go backwards when you've experienced what the NEX 7 can do.    So, IMO, the NEX 6/7 successor only needs to improve AF, keep a 24mp (or more) sensor with improved high ISO performance, and add some of the expected features.  If Fuji had released the X-T1 with a 24mp sensor then Sony would be in for a much bigger fight IMO.   Of course Fuji will convert some NEX users but I don't think it will be as many as it could have been.

That being said, the EVF, weather sealing and tilt screen are great moves by Fuji and I'll be interested to see the X-Pro 2 or the X-T2 with a  new sensor.
