I cancelled my Fuji X-Pro2 order and bought a Canon 7D Mark II | Noah Bershatsky

Why? Because, I really like my Fuji X-T1. Here’s a list of pros about keeping my X-T1:

  • It responds reasonably well.
  • I’m quite happy with the images.
  • The control layout is wonderful.
  • The tilting LCD is very useful.
  • The EVF is quite nice (not as good as the GX8, but still nice)

Is the X-Pro2 a better camera? In most ways, I’m sure it is. Still, here’s my list of cons:

  • The optical viewfinder doesn’t excite me at all. I would never use it, just the EVF (that’s what I do on the used X-Pro1 I bought).
  • I’d really miss the tilting screen.
  • The cost – it’s expensive in comparison to the excellent X-T1.
  • Most importantly, I’d rather have an updated X-T1 with a better EVF, faster focusing, and more resolution……..

Fuji X-Pro2 Preview: Race to the finish for new kid on the block |
Bill Palmer

For a dedicated X-phile like me the announcement last week of the long-awaited successor to the X-Pro1 was like Christmas all over again. The news that the 100-400mm will also ship shortly was equally welcome. I’ll draw a kindly veil over the X70; I have already made it clear that it will not be gracing a camera bag of mine anytime soon. But oh, the X-Pro2… It looks like our patience has been rewarded in the best possible way. It is, if the specs and the beta tester reports are to be believed, a significant step up from my much-loved X-Pro1 and an evolutionary leap for the range as a whole, incorporating the lessons learned and the best bits from more recent models like the X100T and bringing in new advances such as dual SD cards and of course that new sensor…….

Strobist: On Assignment: Mum for Fuji | David Hobby

For the last couple of years, I have been involved in the planning process for the Fuji X-Pro 2. I’ve been using a pre-production unit since October. One of the photos I did for them (the only one where I used flash, actually) is the miniature chrysanthemum seen above. Up for a quick game of Guess the Light? Then take a moment before reading on. And I’ll give you this much: it’s done with a single speedlight. How to Make a Camera. At Fuji, they bring photogs into the design process very early, hashing it out back and forth right across the table from the engineers. I first saw physical prototypes of the X-Pro 2 in October of 2014, working with a group of photographers from the US and Canada……

What does the X-PRO 2 mean for Fuji addicts!? | Bill Fortney

Let me be clear, as I said yesterday, I have not seen an X-PRO 2, an d I have not held one, or shot with one!  I am very excited that I will be getting one of the very first, actual production cameras, but I want to talk about what I think this new camera means to all of us Fuji-holics!  I have read everything I have seen on the web, and it is a large volume of information,  some articles and reviews I’ve read are from people I know and trust implicitly!  So for now, I am going to assume that much of what I’ve read, from trusted sources, is true and accurate, and I have no reason to doubt these folks! So I think the importance in the release of the X-PRO 2 is it further cements the belief that Fuji is truly committed to elevating their X-System with products of ever increasing quality and functionality!  Let’s start with the sensor and processor………

Perspective on gear……. | Bill Fortney

I’ve been heavy in gear lately and I’m going to be through out this coming week!  I will be writing about the apparently (I say apparently because I have not held one yet, ^&%$!#$!?!) Fuji X-PRO 2, all is good though, I fully understand that I’m not one of the X-Photographers that has traditionally used the X-PRO 1!  The truth is I bought one some time ago and after a few months realized I just was not getting along with it and sold it.  I’ve regretted that constantly, ever since, and have almost bought a second one but knew this one was coming!  Tomorrow I will deal with the new X-PRO 2 which I will be doing project for Fuji with, a Two Week Road Trip for their Website, and I can’t wait!!!   So more on that later, but for today I want to deal with the whole gear thing…….

The X Pro 2, Some Initial Thoughts | Henry Smith

Well it’s finally been introduced.  Last Friday, Fujifilm released the long anticipated update of its original replaceable lens “X” camera, the X Pro 1, with a new model, the X Pro 2.   With this introduction, there have been a flurry of early reviews by photographers and writers, who have been given early access to the new camera.  I’ve been reading these with great interest. I have had some contact with Fujifilm marketing recently, opening the possibility of obtaining testing samples: I have made inquiries already as to when this new camera body may be available. In the meantime, like many Fujifilm X shooters, I need to decide whether this new camera would be a logical addition to my equipment bag, or a $1700 trophy acquisition……

Fuji’s touchy feely X70: Is it all it’s cracked up to be? | Bill Palmer

Now, you all know that I am a big Fuji advocate, right?  Some of you may also remember that I have been saying for some time that I would like to see Fuji offer an equivalent to my Ricoh GR—a hole in their otherwise comprehensive lineup that needs a bit of filling. Now it seems that the rumours are true and we are about to see the X70. I should be happy, right? Wrong. Or at least, I am not unhappy, for you see I still have the best option in this market niche—the GR. A little history. I have had a Ricoh GR on and off, in one form or another, since the film days, when they were barely wider (at one end) than a film canister and slipped easily into a pocket whilst still delivering superlative performance and a high quality result thanks to the lens. They have always been well-built, „photographers’ cameras“ with a magnesium alloy chassis and a control layout that felt familiar from first acquaintance…….

FUJI XT1 REVIEW | 4 REASONS I AM NOT PURCHASING | ALAN MATTHEWS

Yeah, it looks sexy and all that jazz.  Sure, Zack Arias has sold all his Canon gear for only Fuji bodies and lenses. And, yes everyone is trumpeting on and on about how LIGHTWEIGHT the Fuji is and how tired they (Fuji fans) are of carrying 50lbs of camera gear everywhere they go. And yes, I’ve heard some photographers claim it reignited their passion for photography which makes me scratch my head. My question is this: are you a photographer because you have a passion for making images or because of the gear? If you pay attention to any social media or podcasts targeted toward photographers in the last year or two, you hear so much from everyone (seemingly) how amazing and transformative the Fuji X system has been for them.  I have been sucked into all the talk (and its sexiness) about how the Fuji is the Holy Grail of…..well I’m not quite sure what I was hoping for but after my recent rental of the Fuji XT1 with the 35mm 1.4 lens and the 18mm 1.4 I am no longer interested in the camera for myself……….

Fuji X series from a professional prospective | Martin Hodgkiss

The opinions in this blog are entirely my own but often concurred by other tog’s I respect. I have no connection whatsoever with fuji and I know that there are other systems out there that other users feel passionate about, in their own right. It’s not a blow by blow review of the camera either, there’s plenty of those already on the net. So if your still with me read on……

Sechs Monate nach dem Wechsel von Nikon DSLR zu
Fuji Systemkamera | Jörg Langer

Ob es nun genau sechs Monate her ist kann ich Euch gar nicht sagen, es war auf jeden Fall Anfang 2014, dass ich den schon lange angepeilten Wechsel umgesetzt habe. Mir wurden meine bisherigen Kameras zu schwer und ich wollte leichter werden. (… wer jetzt blöd grinst ist dran!) Was war also passiert zu Beginn des Jahres? Nun, ich nahm meine schweren Nikons, die D800, die D3 und die D3s und habe sie zum Teil verkauft, getauscht oder in den Schrank gelegt und angefangen alle Jobs mit den spiegellosen Systemkameras aus dem Hause Sony und Fuji umzusetzen…….
