My point is to ask why some (such as Fuji, Olympus, and others) have native ISO starting at 200 when they could do better?

Something to keep in mind is that the ISO standard does not specify a specific process for the implementation of ISO or tonal rendering in the processing of an image. So, when talking about one manufacturer's ISO 200, and other manufacturers' ISO 200, there's no guarantee a photo made with a Nikon camera at f/4, 1/200, ISO 200 will match the lightness of a Fuji (or any other brand) photo made at the same exposure and ISO settings. Manufacturers are free to implement ISO and tonal palettes as they see fit.

Good to know. Thanks
