Ebrahim Saadawi: The detail level is abysmal. The entire resolution is on par with a camera mounted on a Nokia phone (not even the new state-of-the-art phones).

However all the other aspects of the image are very good, and even excellent when it comes to colour. The tonal range both luminance and chrominance are vast, the images are very alive when viewed on a Phone or an iPad. So if the output it for that, I think this is good enough.

I don't know what to think. The images look great, but when you check the detail, it's just unforgivable. The sharpeining algorithm is crushing, both radius and amount, just crushing.

How often you would use pixel peeping for job? Have you ever print it yet? Try a shot, good shot and printed it on Glossy Photo Paper at least 24R. I tried on 150cm x 100cm Professional Photo Paper jpeg and sooc using this camera and its kit lens, its too good one with its price.

Elyharbour: I hope no newbies are reading these comments! Talk about mega-confusion. Their brains will explode. Total cr*p / great camera / wonderful JPEGs / not wonderful JPEGs / Bayer better / X-Trans better / great lens / rubbish lens / smartphone better / smartphone not better..did I miss anything?

@Ebrahim Saadawi What is the methods to check the details? By laptop? Macbook? Have you ever printed it ? I already tried to printed in large scale (150cm x 100cm) just from jpeg file then there's details showed that you said before, unforgivable? I know because i use it to my family and printed on Professional Glossy photo paper (not inkjet neither digital print).

arpcsm: In contrary to the table on page 1, I don't think X-E2s has an Auto mode switch. ?

X-E2s has auto mode button, not switch

Mupepe: Just bought a X-E3. I have a X-E2 and a Nikon D610. Imagens looks slightly better than X-E2 and it is a bit faster. But the EVF is not confortable to use, because I wear glasses.
A suggestion to Fujifilm: add another option to EVF: EVF only with sensor and LCD only when pressing specific buttons, like Play, Q, Drive (can be customizable). A behaviour similar to a DSLR with OVF, like a D610.

I think fuji's eye sensor can work better than your request. Just move your head then automatically switching to LCD and vice versa, even at shooting mode or playback mode, or just playing with button (Q, Drive or anything).

franzel: Sony, get this : first you design controls and a UI that do not require any customization , to be intuitive and usable out of the box.
Like it was a pro camera .

Then, and only then, do you add customization .

Pros are lazy when it comes to cameras; we hate customization , just want buttons and switches for the important stuff - one for each .
Apart from that, it's set and forget .

And never, ever, do we want to read the damn manual .

just start to consider and try Fuji GFX 50s if less need for speed, or using X-T2.

CheddarMonkey: Not sure I understand why the images seem so noisy. I was hoping this camera would get better image quality than the d7200 but I'm not sure that seems to be the case.

Every new camera launched, mostly they still in "imperfect" condition, such as prototype unit, demo unit or as we know, Fuji always fix the problem with new firmware. I assumed that they borrowed the unit like this. I think, their marketing not considered about this more deeply and this is the lesson for big brand because the "image" of first impression can lift up brand image, or in other size, drowned the brand image. Marketing team Fuji have to learn about this.

I don't know what Fuji will do with this X-Pro2, but if it happened, then it might not be suit for you my friend. :) Or just shoot with NR positioned in "-1" or using RAW-Fine. :)

In reply to:

Boss of Sony: Fuji's latest offerings seem a bit same-old and late to the party compared to the latest announcements by Sony and Panasonic. X70 is a Ricoh GR with knobs. 24mp Fuji x-pro is 3 years later than sony's first 24mp aps-c. The latest Sony and Panasonic offerings have ibis, 4k, full-frame, and never been done before things like pocketable 1 inch sensor with 10x zoom, etc. (and still includes an EVF).

I have your point Don. 16Mp but can printed to 1.8m in Jpeg only? I tried by myself with X100s. Print an ISO2000 photo with 2m height and 2.5m width, print on Photo Paper using old Lambda Machine. I shocked by myself how can it be ? 16Mp ? Jpeg ?

Now with 23 Mp? But, i still thinking to purchase X-Pro2 due the price and needs. But in the future, i really want to trade my X-E2 and X-T1 with this X-Pro2 and became side by side with my X-T10.

EricAotearoa: Lovely looking camera, especially with the incorporation of the film speed in the shutter speed dial. Been waiting for this for many years. It's another reduction of the overly complicated computerised digital buttons and menu's of modern cameras. You are certainly heading in the right direction Fuji. I wonder if they can make a much less expensive camera by reducing substantially the menu's and associated functions. In other words, make it more a photographic tool, as opposed to the current trend of overly computerised picture takers. My EM5 has sucked all the fun out of taking photo's.

And Leica has no experience to make film as good as Fujifilm. They had great lenses, yes !! And Fujifilm learns for that. But, time still moves forward. Almost all film makers die, only Fujifilm can survive due to innovation that most people like the tone, even using Minolta, Nikon, Canon, Yashica, Leica etc in film era. Now they transformed to new era of digital, they learn how to make good camera (means can capture image near perfectly ~ like film era). Since then, they increase their R&D, stop FinePix S-Pro series to create something new. Not only color, lenses also, and in lightweight, then functionaly.

Yes, Leica success to create their brand become "collector item", like Marshall (in Audio system). And this is it. Now time prof that. I don't know about you guys, but Fujifilm now success to create their brand based on their past experience and now their performance.

In reply to:

Marksphoto: I don't get it, why do I see in comments that this camera is an upgrade? This camera is a downgrade, I got a tilting screen on my xt10 and the photos don't look any better in the sample gallery. If I had purchased the x pro2 I would be DOWNGRADING.

Fuji is not going to sell many of these precicely because no touch screen, it's a poor marketing decision they have made period. Hope they don't make this error in their xt2 this summer or they will be in the hole. and if in the summer when I see the xpro2 on ebay for $600... even then I will not be interested.

Last time i use XPro1 was more than 1 year ago. And usage of Tilt Screen, only when i travelling or make some simple documentation. With X-Pro1, quietly difficult to use for travelling. And when i purchased X-T10, and very easy to use, suddenly i realized that every camera have their own segment. X-Pro2 i think was not for travelling due to size and "complicated" analogue dial, than X-T10. It will be used for pro that someone who concerned for Image Quality not for someone who use the additional feature or just shoot and fun with camera. Someone who concerned about how to make good exposure BEFORE shoot. Someone who has image in their mind "This image i want to take", not "ah, luckily i got great photo".

That is my own opinion.

In reply to:

colesf: The previous model had very poor parallax correction, making the 90 very impractical to use. It's hard to figure, especially as other companies like Leica and Mamiya have made these viewfinders for decades. If you have to switch to the horrid EVF just to have accurate framing, then all you have is an overly complex but underperforming camera specifically created, like Nikon's overpriced DF, to market to baby boomer nostalgiia.

it depends to the person who use that. Some people still like RangeFinder style that always tricky for framing (and they somehow, make it correct by their brain), but for another people (born in digital area or always use SLR's OVF, really like Electronic View Finder and doesn't like OVF rangefinder style.

In reply to:

Raphot: I think it's tedious and futile to compare the X-pro2 to other mirrorless cameras and slate it because of its lower specs. I think it's basically a cutting-edge digital camera in a sturdy analogue body with an amazing amount of direct control,. As such it won't be suited for all purposes. For example, it won't be suited at all for sports photography despite its fast fps. But once you slow down and think about every shot, you'll start taking better pictures. At least that's what happened with me, I have an XT-1 and for me its the best camera I ever owned. I've been increasingly using it with vintage Leica R lenses and it's been an absolute joy.

@ TheDreamingWatchman
I think his point is he doesn't really need that Wi Fi feature.

Anyway, unstable WiFi ? I use X-T1 side by side with X-T10, and it works fine. Anyway, i use Android phone and Tab. Stable.

Andy Galeati: way, way too much retro... I appreciate the theme, but when it hurts the functionality of video, I just tend to stray. But Im sure the colors and tones for stills will be amazing.

I agreed. some camera now have video, but only some that good in video. I think Fujifilm very concerned for Digital Photography to likely film photography, and only add video for added value.

yes.. It happened everyday? all of your family did that? in motorcycle gatherings, do you do almost everyday? every week? how many times? and how many people take human face in high iso ?

In other group, i just like you bro / sis, but a man talk to me like that. Suddenly i realized, in 1,000 photos, only 50s i shoot faces in high iso. And mostly for documentary purpose, so the important still can be recognized who is that, where is that.

In reply to:

Old Cameras: This seems a little redundant, a remix of existing hardware with nothing new except software features. And it's still relatively expensive. And who was asking for a smaller camera? Fuji has an excellent range of lenses, what about a bigger camera with a huge screen and viewfinder, a 1000 shot battery and plenty of room for controls and a large grip to compete with the best APS-C cameras whether they are mirrorless or DSLR? And a new sensor...

Don't want to use bigger cam. Already enough for big and huge camera at all. Tired to bring and bulky. Like Fuji for simplicity and portability. Huge camera? if they make bigger than FF, I considered to buy one.. Same size with other FF ? Better save money in bank or invest in lenses.

Question is how many time do you want taking human face in high iso? For me, only around 10 photos from hundred or thousand photos when job or in travelling / vacation. And it's worth i think.

already used this camera for months. So far, no complain at all. Great handling, lighter than X-T1. Very easy to use because has Auto lever near Shutter Speed Dial.

The most important, cheaper but same quality with X-T1. Bought with body only (have XF18-55 from X-T1). Will use this for daily use and backup camera side by side with my X-T1 for my job.
