X-T4 still a buy in 2022?

I currently have the X-H1 + vertical grip ever since the first day it came out.

It is definitely a little bulky, but the reason why I bought it in the first place was because of IBIS.

With X-H2 on the horizon, I'm not sure if I should wait or whether I should just trade my X-H1 for a X-T4.  I'm not looking into getting the vertical grip for the X-T4 this time.  I also don't need to shoot 8K video (X-H2).

The Pros for me for X-T4:

- Smaller/lighter

- Better AF and IBIS

- Much improved batt life

The Cons for me for X-T4:

- I prefer the tilty screen on X-H1 (personal preference)

- I also prefer the shutter button on the X-H1

- Same image quality (colors might have been tiny bit not as good compared to X-H1 from the samples I've seen)

The lens I used most is the 16 f/1.4.  I also use the 16-55 f/2.8 or 8-16 f/2.8 when I need a zoom.  Which of course is more balanced with the larger grip on the X-H1.  Anyone using those lenses on X-T4 can chime in.

I don't mind 40Mpix on the X-H2, if It gives me lower noise at high ISO.

Fuji is also having a sale on X-T4 right now.

Should I wait or should I jump now?
