From The Manufacturer

The FUJIFILM X-Pro2 takes X-Series camera performance to new heights. The new 24MP X-Trans CMOS III image sensor and high performance X Processor Pro image processing engine dramatically improve image quality. The Ad-vanced Hybrid Viewfinder is capable of instantly switching between optical and electronic viewfinders. Fast focal plane shutter and intelligent Hybrid Phase detection take performance a step further. Plus, there’s a new weather resistant rugged body and dual SD memory card slots to fulfill the wishes of every pro photographer. By combining these features with the ultra-high image quality of FUJINON X-Mount lenses and FUJIFILM’s renowned color reproduction technology, the X-Pro2 delivers the best ever results from an X-series camera.

Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

Pushing the sensor to the extremes of its ISO range reveals users can shoot confidently between ISO 100-6,400 without fear of noise severely degrading image quality. Colour noise is extremely well-controlled and, although luminance noise makes its presence known at high sensitivities, the level of detail the sensor resolves up to ISO 25,600 is phenomenal.
With the X-Pro2, Fujifilm has developed a viewfinder that offers what people love about rangefinders and what they need from a professional camera all in one package. It’s business and pleasure at once.
The X-Pro2 has an all-new third-generation X-Trans sensor, which ups the resolution considerably over the rest of the X Series, and a fresh image-processing unit (the "X-Processor Pro").
The X-Pro2 is a 24MP high-end X-mount camera whose appeal is inextricably linked to its innovative optical/electronic hybrid viewfinder.
Autofocus features have seen a big change with the Fuji X-Pro2. With its overhauled autofocus system, the X-Pro2 offers impressive speed and accuracy.

I must say that the EVF on the Fuji X-Pro2 is exceptional in performance, exhibiting virtually zero perceived lag, displaying exactly what will be recorded in the image, including set white balance and film simulation.

What reviewers didn't like

The X-Pro2 clearly benefits from the lack of a low-pass filter. The level of detail recorded by the sensor goes one better than that of the X-Pro1 and it resolves a maximum of 3,400l/ph between ISO 100 and ISO 400. Resolution drops ever so slightly at ISO 800 to 3,200l/ph and it manages to resolve the same 3,000l/ph figure between ISO 3200 and 6400.
I’ve been using the X-Pro2 as my primary camera for a couple of months, and although I feel better about using the OVF more for fun than ever before, when it comes to work I just don’t trust it as much as the EVF. And that’s a big reason why, despite the name, the X-Pro2 isn’t always Fujifilm’s best pro camera.
The X-Pro2 is not a compact mirrorless camera. At 445g (0.98 pounds), it's only 10g (a third of an ounce) lighter than the D3100 I tossed aside four years ago.
Video is good but not cutting-edge either in terms of quality or supporting features.
Capable of recording 1080p video at up to 60 frames per second, the 4K-less X-Pro2 won't turn any heads with its video resolving capabilities, but its Full HD MOV files look a lot better than those from previous X-Trans cameras, not displaying the moiré and other artifacts that Fujifilm mirrorless cameras typically exhibit.

WiFi is convenient to quickly download pictures in the field and bring them to your iPhone or iPad, but not having the ability to connect the camera to my Mac in the studio and shoot, while seeing the results delivered instantly on the big screen is something I can still not wrap my head around. Fuji, please stop the blatant excuses and fix this!
