So if XTrans is the greatest thing since canned beer - why does Fuji uses Bayer in the GFX? Hmmmmmm…..?

I would guess it is simply a matter of sensor cost. Fuji sells far, far more crop cameras than medium format. Given the volume, a custom color filter array on the crop sensors would have little to no financial consequences. The same is not true for the volume of medium format sensors.

Assumptions/perceptions of the people buying crop versus medium format could be playing a role too.

Sounds like a fair assumption. Big difference in size between the sensors though. Maybe the small APSC really benefits from the XTrans whilst the much bigger GFX doesn’t need it.
