Would you pay $1000 for the same X100s with an FF senor, a stop better performance and some 1.5-2x better resolution?

Even now the difference between volume prices of APS-C and FF sensors is about $400-500, and the gap is shrinking. Add to that competitive pressures and within 2 years we'll see FF bodies selling for under $1G.

I think you're being a tiny bit optimistic there. 'Competitive pressures' are responsible for the consistently low prices and rebates we have at the moment, the ones that are stopping Fuji and others from making a profit in cameras.

Trying to market a sub-$1k 35mm camera on top of that is dicing with insolvency.
