I didn't want to say they are not good, just that since the X-Pro1 (march 2012) all subsequent cameras have had the same sensor with the same performance, except for the addition of PDAF pixels, so instead of making the X-Trans sensor better, they just made it redder.
BTW, last info I read was that the imaging department of Fuji still made losses in the last year, due to the compact cameras which don't go well. They also said that the X line does better, but compacts tear them down.
Except that you have different (and more valid) info, this...Show more →
Interesting, I haven't had the red problem with my X-E2.
If you search for Fuji annual reports for the last couple of years you'll see Fuji's camera strategy laid out pretty clearly. They say their road to profitability in digital imaging is cost containment, and moving away from the smart phone impacted low end market and focusing on the higher end market.
This strategy requires mostly word of mouth promotion to be successful. I think it is starting to take hold but will require several years to affect market share in that space. A few months ago I never heard of Fuji X cameras, now I hear lots of favorable Fuji buzz initiated by Nikon's big retro Df marketing campaign. I ended up buying a Fuji system and selling my FF gear.
