Thinking of switching to an X Pro 2...never used them. However, how is the OVF with my lenses? 14 2.8, 23 1.4, 56 1.2. Thinking they all might be blocked in some way, or hard to use? 

Is there an an OVF like external adapter that would work with the 14, similar to how Leica or the X70 has?

Not a deal killer, I can still use the EVF if these are blocked.

I'd probably pick up the new 27 WR lens also.

I have an X-T* camera now (which are cheaper and more dials and buttons)... but just prefer rangefinder left evf placement, like my X-E3.

Hi jpickles, the 23/1.4 and the 56/1.2 will block a significant part of the OVF of the X-Pro2. It will be a little bit less when you use the optional square metal lenshood. The one for the 23/1.4 will also fit on the 56/1.2. The 14/2.8 is less obstructing the OVF esp. when you remove the lenshood. However, the framelines for the 14mm will be outside your OVF. Best switch to EVF for that lens. The 16mm will roughly be the max. for the OVF (representing the entire OVF view (no framelines displayed).

    • Any update on this issue? My xpro3 was purchased earlier this year, still under warranty. But I cannot turn it on at all. After a shoot last Saturday, I left it on its shelf and picked it up to shoot this morning: totally unresponsive. Tried 4 different Fuji batteries all charged. No luck. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you. 
    • The reply I received from Fuji back a while ago   “Thank you for your patience regarding this issue.     After speaking to our camera service engineers, they told me there is no coating on the new cameras and while the new LCD panels have a similar colour gamut, they are no longer calibrated by the factory in the same way that they used to be.   They believe this changed around the end of 2019 but they weren't sure.  Nothing that should make a black and white image look sepia though, the LCD will be slightly warmer out of the box.   In the same way that most TV screens and monitors are not colour calibrated from the factory, the LCD screens on our cameras are not either and instead have the option to be adjusted manually by the end user to their preference.   I appreciate this is probably not what you are looking for, but this is how the new generation of cameras are made” I tested a GFX50s I store that was traded in. No issues with the lcd - Seems the more money you spend the lcd is then properly calibrated. The lower end cameras under 1K they ain’t.    very sad to see
    • I'm trying to understand the unmarked aperture ring on the K&F Concept lens adapter. I recently purchased the K&F Concept Minolta AF (Sony A) to Fuji X lens adapter to use with my old Minolta AF lenses; specifically the Minolta AF 50mm f1.7-f22. With the adapter installed (Fujifilm X-E2S), the camera does not show the aperture selected; understandably as this is a "dumb" adapter. The combination works very well together and I have no complaints. The adapter has a clicked aperture ring that allows for 9 stops from fully open to fully closed. Would the 9 stops equate to f1.7, f2, f2.8, f4, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, f22 for the Minolta AF 50mm f1.7-f22 lens?   Many Thanks!
