Interesting tidbit from the recent Fujifilm rep interview:

Q: "Do you want to compete against professional full frame cameras?"

Toshihisa Iida: "Inevitably yes, we have to compete against full-frame. The professional market is very segmented, and for example for sports photography I think the X-T1 is already competitive. So yes, I’d like to challenge full-frame."

At least one rumour site is interpreting this as "Fuji will release a FF camera," but that's not what he said - he said "challenge full frame," which could mean "Our aps-c Xtrans sensor is what we consider our 'challenge.'"

I wonder what he exactly meant, or even if he possibly meant to be wilfully obtuse.

Talk about over inflated confidence there; how are they competitive in sports photography while offering no suitable lenses? There is a 50-200mm kit lens and that is all. It is a shame about the current state of credulity amongst the photographic reporters who seem to rarely challenge marketing talk. That is why every week there is a new camera with the fastest AF in the "world"*
