Competition is good, and I'm happy to see Fuji continuing with X-Trans, as alternate approaches often lead to more dramatic improvements than come out of incremental refinements of known technology.

However, for me, there's not much in the X-T1 that would tempt me. Again, like the EM-1, it's as large as the A7 with a smaller sensor. I would also much rather have customizable wheels and a dedicated mode dial, than dedicated ISO and shutter speed dials; I really like the controls layout of the A7.

As long as Fuji is using Sony sensors, every Fuji sold is still a good thing for Sony, and Fuji helping to build an APS-C mirrorless market is good for NEX/Axxxx owners as well, as that still means more motivation for Zeiss, Sigma, and others to develop lenses for this market.

Especially given Fuji's current market share, I don't see this as pressure, just reaffirmation and healthy competition. Pressure would be if Canon got serious about mirrorless.

I am not a big fan of the X-trans sensor. Sony has something similar but better in the works, which also does de-mosaicing.

I prefer Fuji's older EXP technology.
