Fujifilm Japan has posted a statement about the release date of the new Fujifilm X-Pro2 flagship mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.
According to the statement, the X-Pro2 has orders more than expected and this causes delay in production. So Fujifilm postponed the release of X-Pro2 until March, 2016. See official press text and here for translated text.
Looks like demand for the X-Pro2 is high in pre-orders which is a good news but Fuji X users will have to wait for a little bit more to get their hands on the new camera.
