The new Fujifilm X-Pro2 flagship camera is expected to be available on the markets from March 25, 2016.
As posted earlier, in Fuji Japan statement, the company said the X-Pro2 has orders more than expected. This causes delay in production. So they postponed the release of X-Pro2 until March, 2016.
The first stock of X-Pro2 will be available on their store from March 25. Even Fuji said the delay is caused by an unexpected high demand. We hope to see no firmware fix for the long-waited X-Pro2 model.
