Fuji’s successor to their first foray into the mirrorless interchangeable lens camera market has been on the foreseeable announcement radar for quite some time – In fact, the X-Pro2 has been rumored to be on the cusp of release for well over a year.
Whether it be by Fuji’s changes in overall strategy, or misinformation from previous sources, the X-Pro2’s whereabouts have been puzzling to say the least. But, FujiRumors – the authority in all things Fuji – believe they have complied thier most accurate and substantiated information to date.
Step aside, X-T1…
According to the latest report, the X-Pro2 will firmly sit atop the current X-Series camera models as Fuji’s MILC flagship camera – ousting the highly-regarded X-t1 from its current position. It will pack a 24MP APS-C X-Trans sensor, articulating rear LCD and WiFi – all in a weather sealed body. Moreover, sources claim the X-Pro2 will feature a high-performance OLED electronic viewfinder, however, there’s been no word on whether it will beat the functionality found on the current X-100T EVF.
With the new enhancements also comes a new price-point. Rumors paint the X-Pro2 to retail for $1,500-$1,700 for the body only – making it the most expensive X-Series option if all information holds true.
As with all rumors, it’s important to take all information with a grain of salt, but it appears as though Fuji may ultimately be putting the final touches on a highly-anticipated camera.
