If fuji slaps the GF 50mm lens on the X Pro 3 body with the medium format sensor I will buy it. Fuji... Please do this! The lens is great and small. I want a MF compact camera with the hybrid viewfinder. Is anyone else as crazy as I?

Maybe I'm missing something, but if you want an MF lens and an MF sensor, then buy an MF camera.  That's why the format exists, and by definition, neither the sensor nor lenses will fit comfortably in a crop format body.  Unfortunately, Fuji is bound by the laws of physics in designing their cameras and you can't get something for nothing here.  There's a good reason why MF cameras are significantly larger than their crop or FF counterparts.

What you're looking for simply cannot be built due to physical constraints.  If you want to enjoy the IQ benefits of larger formats, you have to be willing to pay the price in size and cost.  I doubt that will ever change.  Sorry.
