The Fujifilm X-Pro 2 is very similar to Fujifilm X-Pro 1. While the design changes are minimal, the interior with magnesium chassis has been redesigned. The improvement between the second and first generation is remarkable, so we have no doubt that the third will be even better.
Fujifilm is continuing to invest efforts in making the fastest cameras – people complained that the X series were slow and had even slower autofocus. The company says that the X-Pro 2 has a processor that is four times faster than its predecessor!
The X-Pro 2 brings the latest renewal of Fujifilm display with its hybrid system, which combines the benefits of an optical display with a digital.

Summing up, Fujifilm The X-Pro2 is one of the most expensive APS-C cameras now on the market.
The camera’s image quality is excellent and the 24MP sensor boosts the resolution and seems to benefit from improved and more subtle processing of fine detail.
Film Simulation modes can be changed retrospectively, if you shoot Raw, as can details such as white balance fine tuning and the highlight and shadow aspects of the tone curve.
The camera’s DR modes let you choose an appropriate balance between highlight capture and the noise that comes from using a shorter exposure, as you shoot each shot.
The Fujifilm X-Pro2 has a significant upgrade over the original Pro1, improved in every respect to give a much faster and more flexible tool and exaggerating in price.
The increase in megapixels, was no doubt one of most awaited things in X line, and that’s one of the things that most convince photographers to adopt the X-Pro2. The new release can have several things in common with the X-T1, but one of the strong and unique things of the Fujifilm X-Pro 2 are it’s 24 megapixels, against the 16 of the APS-C previous models.
