Watching reviews today on Youtube about the Sony A7 IV, it had me thinking that Fujifilm may have made a mistake postponing the release of the X-H2 this year in favor of making a big splash on their 10th anniversary. Of course, the stacked sensor in the X-H2 will probably make a big difference, but I'd think that Fujifilm will lose some potential sales to the A7 IV.

Also, Fujifilm will have to make great strides in AF. If the X-H2 can't compete with the A7 IV in human eye AF, it will also be a huge disappointment. Add to that, the significant improvements in the A7 IV's animal eye AF.

Call me crazy, but I'm hoping for an X-H2 at less than $2500 that is nearly on par with the A1.

I agree with everything you said. Fuji does NOT want to be reading the type of review after review like the Pentax K3III expressing how they are asking for too much money for the XH2 because is an APS-C. Yeah, the XH2 won't be a DSLR and I'm 100% sure it won't be as bad as the K3III, not even close, but is still an APS-C. Again, it HAS to have something special and unique as other have said too, so that XH2 owners won't get really upset when the XT5 shows up.

I'm Just saying

Let’s face it, if you are using Fuji it’s because you think they still offer something unique. If you just want the coolest specs, then there are surely better deals. Sony could sell that A7 IV for $1500 and I still wouldn’t want it. I just do not like using Sony cameras.

That’s what I told my wife that some people here in the Fuji forum really don’t like Sony, but it looks like a lot of people do like it because everywhere I go someone is using a Sony.

Oh I agree. Sony is certainly more popular and also easier to obtain. But us diehard Fuji users don't care about popularity contests.

And the truth is that Sony has answered to all the complaints people had so that mentality that Sony “sucks” might be a thing of the past pretty soon.

I've tried a handful of Sonys for extended periods of time, the A7R, A7II, A7RII, A7c, RX1RII etc... a few of the RX100 series. They still are horrible ergonomically and the menus are still too overly complex.  It's obviously I've wanted to like them right? I just do not.

By the way I too know people that don’t like Fuji and they would never buy a Fuji camera.

Of course...
