Oh My Gosh! Just received a GREAT RUMOR! Just a Hint for now... more soon!

There will be no actual X-Pro 2. Instead the teased rumor is about something that will replace the X-Pro 1 but it will not be called X-Pro, because it is too different technology-wise. The "major breakthrough" that fuji said it wanted to wait for with the X-Pro2 is too major to stay with the X-Pro branding. Hence a new camera section in this forum.

WOW, I just got an amazing rumor from a source, who was right in the past. Can't share more for now, since I still have to write the text (I'll write it after lunch), send it to the source for review and wait for its “OK”. Just stay tuned on FujiRumors and the Fuji X Forum.


But I tell you this... we could need a New Camera Section (!!!) here on the Fuji X Forum!


btw, I wrote this thread during coffee break... as you can see in the Selfie I share here with you (used WiFi remote control)

X30 with larger sensor I guess

If I had to guess then I would say a new organic sensor with a 1.3X crop factor that can still be used with existing lenses, the megapixel count will be 20 MP and if its in the next X Pro they aren't going to call it that anymore. Downside, a new crop factor shortens all our lenses so I don't know if I would bite on that given the investment I have made in glass for the focal length equivalents.

    • I must have activated the wrong setting because now when I switch to the OVF the white windows stays for a second and then completely disappears. Any idea how to get it back? Thank you all so much. 🙂
    • No thunder stolen. If you read to the end of my article you'll see (in the section "Resources") I have a link for Simon Weir's site. I also have two other links on there with various IR tests. My article is only Fuji-centric because that is my system of choice though I've done a ton of IR work with Sony FF as well. I consider the sites for which I provide links to be complementary and I wish there were more sites out there evaluating for infrared. Although I test for infrared quite thoroughly I can only afford so many lenses. The eight Fuji mount lenses shown in my article I bought myself. In fact, same with the Sony and Micro 4/3 with the exception of the two Sony APS-C zooms that were rented. Also when I get new lenses, I'll update the article on my blog. I can't update the PetaPixel one as they just republished what was on my blog at the time. I have recently shot with the Voigtlander Nokton 35mm f1.2 Fuji-X and 7Artisans 35mm f0.95 Fuji-X. After trying 2 samples of the Voigtlander I returned them both but mainly for their strange and unacceptable (for my work) performance with resolution. Regarding IR, the Voiglander is free of hotspots from 1.2 through about f3.5. I'm impressed with the 7Artisans overall but it only works for IR at wider apertures (f0.95 through about f2.8.) Then again that's why you buy an f/0.95 lens. Thanks for the feedback. Happy shooting! Joel
    • Yes I don’t blame you. I’ll always have some Fujifilm gear. But if they don’t upgrade their gear in the next 3 months I’m going to go back to Canon for a lot of my work. I really love Fujifilm for all the right reasons but it’s faults are getting in the way of my work at this point.
    • You're welcome. I still use my X-Pro2 for personal work every now and then, but I replaced the X-H1 (and the rest of the Fuji-kit) with a Z7II-based kit and I'm very satisfied with that move.
    • That’s a lot of great info. I’m gonna explore those options. I don’t really wanna get an XT4 at this point. (Come on X-H2!) Thanks!
