Nice writeup - thanks for posting. The XE2 seems more of an upgrade over XE1 than I thought. I am inclined to wait to see waht XPro 2 is likely to be as I suspect it will be much larger upgrade.

Hence the delay.


I think Fuji has a tall order to fill for the XPro2.  The competitor has upped the ante with Sony's introduction of A7/A7r.  The A7 is practically at the same price point when Fuji introduced the XPro1.  So either XPro2 will have to be cheaper by a few hundred dollars or it has to be much better with similar sensor performance level at the A7.  It means 24Mpix and better high ISO performance.  I don't see it happening unless Fuji has finished work with its organic sensor.

Awhile ago, there was a video posted on Youtube about someone testing a top secret Fuji X camera and Fuji has asked the testers to especially check out high ISO performance.  The video was taken down after Fuji's request.  It'd seem to me they're not testing the X-E2, as the high ISO performance is the same as X-E1.  So I'd think we should be seeing an entirely new sensor on the XPro2.
