i don't know about others, but I like it for the same reason I like meatloaf.  It brings back warm memories.

I started shooting with Leicas when I was a teenager, back in 1967.  Look at down on the XP2 or XE2s or Xe3, then look down on the top of a Leica M3.  You'll see the appeal to me.

Using the wheel on my Canon 5D2 may be easier and make more sense, but I don't care. Fuji knows how to lure geezers like me, along with the young PBR swilling crowd.
