An XF10 make sense if I already have the 18mm f2?

I just did a quick search and there is a lot of love for the X70, so much that I saw a few used samples more expensive than brand new XF10s.

Yeah the XF10 is a pretty poor successor to the X70. A lot of people say it's not supposed to be, but they stopped selling the X70 so... But the X70 has the manual controls I mentioned, an X-Trans sensor (XF10 has 24MP Bayer sensor), and a flip-up selfie screen. I've seen used ones selling now for more than what they cost when they were new. Very strange since I'm pretty sure Fujifilm considered the camera a flop.

Yes, I did some research and there are used X70s in average condition with asking prices higher than new XF10s. As much as I like the aperture ring I wouldn't pay 700 bucks for one. Maybe the X-A7 is an option after all and I can use my lenses with it.
