If Fuji put their mind to it they could have a decent FF lens line-up along with a body in less that 24 months. Fuji could be a force to be reckoned with if they carry on the way they're going.

What makes you think Fuji has the resources to create a full lens line-up when Sony wasn't able to do it? Fuji will stay as a niche option. High quality but still to small to be something for the masses.

They could do to Nikon/Canon what Apple did to Nokia.

a) Just look at what they've done in the last 24 months, or so, with the APS-C lenses! They clearly do have the ability.

So now you think they have the money and resources to start all over again?  Fuji gambled there existence on the APS-c line.

b) Sony have a different customer base where a far higher proportion are people who want a Sony badge and specification bragging rights like having FF, 36 megapixel, etc. Fuji is geared more towards real photographers/photography enthusiasts than generic consumers and so they have a better audience to appreciate and ultimately buy the lenses.

That is one of the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.  There are very few generic consumers that buy FF cameras. plus you need those general consumers to buy the low end to fund the high end.
