Fuji's advantage over the µ4/3 proposition is that their larger APS-C sensor and optimal in-camera data processing result in very good image quality up to ISO 6400 while µ4/3 are good only up to ISO1600.
There is so much wrong in this sentence that I have to quote it. The APS-C Size is exactly between the MFT and the FF. So you blow up the advantage to MFT by 2 stops but you can't accept any advantage to the equally higher FF-Sensor? What is wrong with you Fuji-Fanboys? There are so many good competitors like f.e. Pentax which can easily compete with Canon/Nikon but the users just use them and live in coexistence. Do you have to prove something? To compensate? Just make pictures and prove everyone wrong with the results.
I like Fuji, infact, I love my GX680. I adore Velvia and the X100S is one of the beste cams in the last half Decade but please read the facts, too. Fact is that Fuji X-Trans Sensors are cheating on the ISO. ISO6400 on a X-T1 is nearly a real ISO3200. This is even the highest (real) ISO you can get with shooting RAW. You can't even shoot RAW with more than (fake-)ISO 6400, just JPEGs. A Fullframe 5DM3 is clean and useable @real ISO12800. This is your 2stop difference. Do we need this? Maybe. But please compare fair, ok?
I think Fuji has already realized that they are better served by sticking to their APS-C X-mount platform, where they can deliver on those unique value propositions as long as CaNicon keep on feeding APS-C photographers with second-rate equipment.
This is bull, too. You can use every fullframelense on the Canon APS-Cams. So just grab a decent L-Lense and go out with it. You can use the Canon 35mm f2 IS as Standard, getting Images on par with the fujilense. Cheaper and with Image Stabilisation. You don't have to use the cheap Kit-Lenses or EF-S... but you could. And if you want to get serious on APS-C, just take a 7D.
In the mean time they can work at converting more and more DSLR customers to mirrorless by releasing more top-class lenses and improving further the performances and specs of cameras to come.
No one convinced me for mirrorless systemcameras until now. I just heard marketing-blah-blah. The important and good X-lenses are as pricey and heavy as the Canon-ones and why do I need a small camera, which is lying in my hand like a toy? I can't nail a pin with a spoon.
