Now if Fuji does this - so soon - then I'll be...

...p-i-s-s-e-d to the max!  See here:

It's bad enough that the X-A3 was released (IMO) in haste - purely, that is, in order to get an X-A level 24 MP version quickly to the market - but the number of operational quirks on that model has left quite a few of us X-A3 users with a bit of a source taste in our mouths.  And come to find out after-the-fact that the X-A3 was "outsourced" to another manufacturer, didn't help the matter much either.   Don't get me wrong here as the end result - the IQ - is excellent on the X-A3.  So it seemed obvious that we assumed that Fuji would release a series of FW updates to fix many of those issues.

But now, there are some strong rumors that a pending X-A5 is about to be released!  Whaaaaat?  If that indeed comes to fruition, that would mean that the X-A3 would be a short lived scenario (with no additional FW updates to be released).  This almost sounds like the way Canon does things - that is, release very few (if any) FW updates, and just incorporate the improvements into the next release.

What do you folks think here?
