Nikon F is dead. On opticallimits, that is. It's not that there are tons of new lenses flooding in but the last review was in November 2017. And since then one or two new Nikkors were released... I know, Klaus, you guys (meaning actually you and Mr. Schroiff ) do it for personal pleasure, but c'mon, even old Nikon isn't as dead as the Nikon department here. However, in April 2019 Markus published a Fuji review, so he still is part of the team?

He has a Nikon Z7 and 4 Z lenses at home ...
As far as Nikon F and Canon EF are concerned - let's be realistic about those ...

MFT will stay on 16mp till there is a camera >20mp. Just moving to 20mp is pointless.
Nikon F - well, Markus has a D850 but I don't see major efforts into this
Nikon DX is dead as is Canon EF-S
Fuji -> 26mp
Canon RF - this one is difficult. I hesitate to buy the EOS R - 30mp don't really cut it.
Nikon Z - Markus has the Z7
Canon EF - 50mp will remain the game for years to come
Sony FE - yes, 42mp
Sony E - no change since the dawn of time here anyway
Canon M - I don't see much traction here, so 24mp will remain as is.
Pentax - dead.
L-mount - for the time being - no.

Isn't there also a Leica board on OL? But people interested in them will buy them anyway, no matter what's OL finding.
Well, the Z-lenses are a bit pointless to test as there is no alternative to them at the moment - except to change ships. Before L-mount alliance was announced I was hoping Sigma would have started their reverse engineering mills, but making lenses for Sony clearly pays better. I was trading in my old D810 for the 14-30 lately. It's less sensitive to flares than the old Nikkor 14-24 (not exactly a surprise), but the green/red blobs due to reflections from sensor to glass and back don't look attractive, either. I also compared it to the Sigma Art, unfortunately not in the green/red blobs provoking situation - I just wonder if the distance between T-type-lens and Z-mount will be long enough to kill these reflections.

Haven't seen that post. Let's also be realistic about a lens test site which still has nothing to tell about the quality of a couple of new lenses for new mounts... Yes, also lensrentals only tests the MTF of Sony lenses as they still don't have mounts for Canon and Nikon mirrorless, but sooner or later they will get these.
I really understand the hesitation: You saw Samsung going down and Nikon 1, too. Pentax maybe next. Investing time in horses which are not really dead right now but on shaky legs, is not very interesting.

Now that you've made your decision - while I personally prefer the x-t30 (small size) over the x-h1 - I should mention it appears that x-h1 is being heavily discounted and those discounts might increase:

Well, at some stage there'll be a X-H2 (or H1 II) ...
