This is my current dilemma and I wonder if it is too late to switch to Sony.

After examining XT-3 as well as Canon's limited lineup of lenses and new camera I wonder if I will regret the switching to Sony.

There may always be something better in the future

Canon's new lens mount and their unique lenses have the potential to really kick a## when a pro body comes out.

Hahaha.........sure. Canon's latest track record of late is to completely underwhelm with bodies . I also will believe the hype on how advantageous the new mount is in when lenses come along that show the superiority of the wider mount. That isn't sarcastic. I will actually consider switching if and when that comes true

And XT-3 viewfinder, responsiveness, and price are incredible.

No doubt. If somebody wants one of the best apsc cameras out there then it is worth a good look. If you want better IQ, more lens selection, IBIS, and cheaper equivelant lenses then Sony still has the advantage there

At least there is now a little competition.

Which is awesome. I don't think Sony is perfect and I would love to see them clean up small issues that shouldn't even exist.

I use and have both (A7III + XT2) and the difference, from my own experience and not reviews or forums, is simple: the Fuji is more 'photographer' like and just is more fun and intuitive to use for me, the Sony is better in high ISO, AF and face/eye detection but often really feels like a small computer instead of a camera. Both can produce stunning images, I just "love" the Fuji, I "like" the Sony

plus the EVF on the Sony A7III is horrid vs the Fuji

Sony is a good camera -no doubt - but is does not beat the Fuji in all areas

if you have only tried the X2 and not the X3 you would be surprised at how good it is

in fact DP forum themselves just called it "the best all around camera"

Not in all areas. Even Sony doesn't best the Z or R cameras in all categories.
