Ergonomics

While the basic control logic of the X-T2 and X-Pro2 is very similar (and more or less standard across the entire X-series) the two cameras are ergonomically quite different. The rangefinder-style X-Pro2's viewfinder is positioned off to the left of the camera (with its back facing you) while the X-T2's finder sits in a DSLR-style 'hump' in line with the lens axis. 

Which of these designs appeals more to you is a matter of personal preference (skip back to the previous slide for a better explanation of the technical differences between the two cameras' viewfinders) but the experience of shooting with them is subtly different as a result.

The X-Pro2 (shown above) is designed with stills shooters primarily in mind, and more specifically, stills shooters who like to use prime lenses. The X-Pro2 doesn't handle quite as well with Fujifilm's longer, heavier zooms, whereas these are the kinds of lenses that the X-T2 is specifically designed to be paired with. With the optional power booster grip attached, the X-T2 balances nicely, even with Fujifilm's beefiest lenses. And of course, that grip also duplicates key controls for vertical format shooting.
