Fuji X-Pro2 Review Summary
Fuji X-Pro2 Assessment
The Fuji X-Pro2 introduces a new 24 MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS III sensor that shows exceptional image-quality. Sharpness, dynamic-range, metering and colors are all very good. Noise levels are extremely low until medium sensitivities where they still remain quite low.
The new 273-Point hybrid autofocus system provides accurate autofocus on a large area with a speedy performance in good light. It unfortunately slows down more than usual in low-light. Otherwise, the X-Pro2 is very quick and extremely responsive.
The revised range-finder style body has a huge amount of dials and controls, now with dual control-dials, an embedded ISO dial which is not that easy to use, and a joystick for AF-point selection. The new body appears very sturdy and is now weatherproof and freezeproof, characteristics which were missing from the original X-Pro1, despite its professional-sounding name.
|Very low image noise up to ISO 3200||Below average AF speed in low-light|
|Excellent sharpness||Color cast with AWB|
|Wide dynamic-range||Lens obstructs OVF|
|Superb metering||Not Exposure-Priority|
|Great color accuracy||Poor ISO dial design|
|Highly accurate AF||Soft dial detents|
|Excellent EVF mode||Soft aperture detentsWith all current XF-mount lenses|
|Plenty of direct controls||Video recording delay|
|Excellent build quality||Very short battery-life|
The Fuji X-Pro2 is truly high end mirrorless camera with performance to match. It delivers one of the best image quality from a mirrorless camera. The main choice photographers face is deciding between the X-Pro2 and X-T1, both professional-grade cameras with the former having an advantage in terms of resolution and the latter one in terms of image noise at high ISO. Ergonomics of the X-T1 are also somewhat better, including a larger EVF, while it lacks the hybrid viewfinder which is so useful for street photography.
