Four years after the original X-Pro was released, FujiFilm finally got around to making the X-Pro2. It’s a retro-style compact system camera with Fuji’s famed image quality and the same kind of great manual controls seen in the original X-Pro.
The important comparison for people buying today is between this camera and the excellent FujiFilm X-T2, though. Specs-wise they’re similar, but the difference is much more than just aesthetic.
Where the X-T2 has an OLED electronic viewfinder, the X-Pro2 has a hybrid one, pairing an OLED EVF with an optical viewfinder. This gives it an old-school sensibility some may like. Its screen doesn’t tilt, though, which some photographers now consider essential.
The X-Pro2 also lacks 4K video, a feature the X-T2 has. Apparently this is because FujiFilm found the camera overheated when shooting 4K for too long. It’s a bit of a dinosaur in some respects, but it’s a truly lovable one.
At the time of review, the X-Pro2 was available for £1349
