But yes, the X-T200 seems to be very nice for the price. I reckon the plastic feel is the biggest issue?
Wasting resources (of R+D) for too many of them is an issue, yes. Not for me, I don't care if Fuji develops themselves into agony
Think about it. X-T200 sells close to X-T30. Bayer sensor is cheaper to produce than XTrans CFA one. Missing Eterna means that the processor is probably the one in X-T2/X-T20, which does not have to work as heavily not needing to demosaic XTrans files.
On the other hand, as with X-T100, you get a price that is close to X-T30 (X-T20 in the case of X-T100). So - a body that is cheaper to produce, priced very close to a upper tier model. That means one thing - margins! And because it is cheaper, it is expected to sell better on some markets (read Asia).
The worst thing is that this is a nice camera with better color detail. : too bad they don't produce a more capable body with Bayer sensor.
