I know we are talking about a different price range at $5.5k, but the Z9 looks amazing and AF tracking is on a whole new level.

If Fujifilm can provide something similar with the X-H2 at $2.5k, it will be HUGE. I can't wait!

Expectations are way too high here…Poor Fuji.

I realize that I have high expectations here, but I'm thinking Fujifilm must know they have something special on hand considering the competition and their remarks about it being worth the wait. I also think they want to make a grand showing for their 10th anniversary body, so I'm thinking it will be special.

I’m not so sure the 10th anniversary of the X camera will be big deal to them… I mean they’ve been making cameras a lot longer than that.

It was my understanding that they withheld the release of the X-H2 in 2021 because they wanted the body to be released on their 10th anniversary. That makes me think it is a big deal to them. But, it could be for other reasons too.

I thought it was because there wasn’t a new sensor they could use and they needed time to make sure it was very current… i.e. not make the same mistake again. By the way, the company is 87 years old.

True.  The X mount (not the X series, which started earlier with the X100) will be ten years old next year, but I doubt that has anything to do with anything - an X-Pro4 would be a more fitting camera to commemorate that anyway.
