It sounds doubtful that the X-H2 will be released at $2199 with a stacked sensor. The initial price at $2499 sounds more realistic since the cost to fabricate one is expensive.

That is my fear - stacked sensors have not been put into the lower price bodies before by Sony, Canon or Nikon. OK - Sony has it in a 1" sensor camera body but its not a cheap 1" body.

If its going to be 2,499 - I don't think many people will pay for the benefits of a stacked sensor design.

And I don't see Fujifilm overproducing a high price body again like they did for the X-H1 - so I don't foresee a fire sale discount on them. They will probability produce them like the X-Pro3 - in low volumes.

If I wanted a Fujifilm body I'd be on it in a minute at that price.  Those that don't want to spend $2500 on a stacked sensor body don't really understand the benefits.  Or they're just too poor to be able to afford it.
