Fujifilm X-Pro2 Reviews and Coverage
Fuji X-Pro2 video quality a huge step up – hands on review at EOSHD :
I am really pleased to say the video quality of the X Pro 2 is seriously impressive. It’s not 4K but it’s enormously satisfying, sharp and detailed. Indeed the image is now very sharp and detailed, with moire and aliasing reduced to an absolute minimum.
From PhotographyBlog review :
In short, the new Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a genuinely lovely camera to shoot with, and one that produces great images time after time. Some users may prefer the DSLR-like format of the X-T-series and resent having to pay a price premium for the complex viewfinder, but for everyone else, the Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a compelling interchangeable lens camera (and not just a compact system camera).
The mirrorless shooter is highly recommended and they give 4.5 out of 5 stars. See also the production of the Fujifilm X-Pro2 camera and how the X-series lenses are made at Fujifilm’s Sendai factory.
