Upgrading my D5100

The options are: D5500 or Fuji X-T1 (once the X-T2 is released and it comes down in price).

D5500 pros:

Upgrade from 16MP to 24MP (I sell my images as stock photography so this would be a benefit)

Better image quality (slightly?)

Better autofocus (slightly?)

Wifi (is this useful?)

New 18-55 VR II lens (same image quality as my 18-55 VR?)

Fuji X-T1 pros:

The full range of mirrorless features, including real time EC in viewfinder, focus peaking, far more customisable controls.

Fuji X-T1 cons:

Need to buy new lenses!

Same 16MP

Any thoughts appreciated!
