A new DSLR assasin, the Fuji X-Pro 2 is coming to town, Canon and Nikon beware!
Superb camera design which features a brand new 24MP X-Trans III sensor. People have been asking for a new processor from Fuji for a long time and it’s here.
Fuji X-Pro2 price: $1,699 – available for pre-order and shipping in February 2016
Fujinon XF100-400 price: $1,899 – available for pre-order and shipping in February 2016
The camera and features are great, it’s a neat little beautiful package but a bit expensive for a crop sensor camera in my opinion. The Fuji X-Pro2 price is $1,699 and for this money you can easily buy a great full frame DSLR which will easily surpass Fuji’s 1.5x crop sensor in image quality and low light capabilities, not to mention that camera manufacturers like Nikon and Canon have a huge lens lineup to choose from and also the lenses are cheaper.
I think their target audience here will be the cool hipster type with a lot of money to spend but to be completely honest I love the design and specs of the new Fuji X Pro 2 and would love take one out for a test drive.
Also it will be great for the street photographers and camera nerds out there who like adapting old, vintage lenses to modern cameras and it will also be great camera to bring on vacation for the more advanced enthusiast photographer as it packs a lot of heat.
Well done Fujifilm, it’s a sexy camera, heck of a way to start 2016!
