I'm not sure what you think Sony should match or outperform. If we take sensors, for example, then Fuji is still using the old Sony 16MP sensor, and even A5000 is already using a newer better 20MP sensor. Obviously A7000 wouldn't be behind A5000.

Maybe, you are talking about body, ergonomics, etc. Then most people hope A7000 will retain the small rangefinder form factor, so it will definitely not match Fuji.

and the successor of the A7r.

This is a completely different category, which no APS-C camera can match, so it makes no sense bringing it into discussion.

How do you think Sony will respond?

Respond? Do they need to respond? To what, exactly?

Fuji is using a Sony 16mp sensor?! Ummmm...no. Fuji is using a Fuji 16mp sensor, that seems to beat the pants of Sony's 16mp sensor. At least as far as I know. Different right down to the pixel layout.

I wish you were right and that there was another company giving Sony a run for their money. I think we would all be better off with more competition in the sensor business.
