Now Fujifilm has again two flagship cameras in its line-up: Fuji X-Pro2 and the new Fuji X-T2.

 

If you had the choice: Would you prefer the Fuji X-T2 or the Fuji X-Pro2?

 

Please vote above and comment below why you would decide so.

I've already pre-ordered the X-T2 last night when they went live. I prefer the ergonomics of the X-T2 as well as the flip out screen, tethered shooting, and the optional battery grip. The X-Pro2 not having those features made it a deal breaker for me.

Whichever of the two will come down to a reasonable price first (reasonable for an APS-c, considering the price point the competitors are selling their cameras).

 

I'd love to use the OVF for human subjects (EVF in low light has too much lag for my taste, at least on the X-T10), and the tilt screen for landscapes (I'm not fond anymore of having to crawl in the mud to frame a shot).

 

In the end I might well end up with an old XPro1 for reportage/street and the X-T2 for landscape work.

X-T2 for me, BUT NOT FOR A WHILE!  Yes, I can pre-order but I think I'll wait.  All the reviews seem very positive and the reviewers are wearing their rose colored glasses.  I think I'll wait until the actual production models hit the market and the real life reviews start to pour onto the web.  Not that anything is wrong with the mass of reviews out there now, just that I have a small problem with folks who get their equipment FROM the company they are reviewing.  So, as I've said for a long, long time I learned my lesson by being an early adopter of the Nikon D800 and I'll never do that again.  The actual delivery of the X-T2 starts in September(?) so I think I can wait until next spring... Hopefully by then all the bugs (if any, as I'm not saying there are any) will have been worked out, the furor will have died down a bit, and maybe, juuuust maybe, prices will have either come down, or their may be some incentives to purchase the X-T2.  If no incentives or price breaks I'll probably buy one anyway, but let's see what the pioneers think of it first.

I'm very curious...

I really like the look and feel of the X Pro 2. I take mine with me to more places than I used to take my X-T1. It feels easier and friendlier, somehow, and it seems to put people at ease. It doesn't scream 'Photographer' like an SLR-alike does. I'm also loving the smaller, lighter lenses. Happy to give up an f-stop for greater pocketability and weather-resistance. I've sold my 16mm 1.4 and 23mm 1.4, brought my 18mm f2 out of retirement and bought a 35mm f2. I'll be buying the new 23mm and 50mm f2 lenses. That will make a kit that suits me just fine.

Very sensible approach. As I'll be one of those early adopters on this one, I think I might do a write up of my thoughts and experience after a month or so of using it very heavily.

I voted with my wallet and purchased an XP-2 a month ago. I knew (as did everyone else) that a T2 was imminent, but I just preferred the rangefinder experience. I don't know why, but I really prefer it to the SLR design. I've shot SLRs for 30 years and loved them, but when I went mirrorless, I started with an XE-2 and was really amazed at how much I liked the far-left rangefinder. I purchased the XP2 in spite of its optical finder, but I find it intriguing to use, especially with my favorite lens, the 23mm. 

 

The T2 looks really nice. I had hoped that it would have the focus joy stick and it does. It has 4K video, and that's great, but not important to me. I wish the XP2 had that great articulated screen, though, and two high-speed slots. I can see that there's a lot of love for the XT-1 on this board and I have a feeling that a lot of people here will buy T2s. 

 

If I decide that I need a second body, I'll spring for a T2. Those of you preordering your T2s: Good luck. I'm confident that you'll really dig it.

I placed a pre-order today for 2 X-T2 bodies with the battery grips. 

 

I'll sell my X-T1 and keep my X-Pro2. I really like the X-Pro2 and in particular the button layout. However, the advantages of the tilting screen, better video, connectivity, far more shots without changing batteries with the grip, tethering, 2 fast card slots and a bigger EVF etc decide it for me. The 2 X-T2 bodies will be my 'work' cameras and the X-Pro2 an enjoyable change of pace.

X-T2 for me. It's all I hoped it would be. All the minor things that slightly bother me with the X-T1 have been fixed. Although, the price... I was counting with a 30% price increase but it got about a 50% increase. And this is the first camera I actually want the battery grip for since it enhances the speed and video capabilities as well as act as a charger.

In a past life of film shot with a Konica C35 range finder.Loved it.Then I stumbled across a web site and saw the Fuji X- Pro2. It was love at first sight.I couldn't wait for the X-T2 so I seized the day and bought the Pro2.I just love it ! Have married it to a bevy of lenses and it's fantastic! No regrets.

      Hello everybody,
      Recently I have changed my 23mm f/2 for an 18mm f/2 Fujinon lens. After I toke a few images inside the house, I have discovered during editing (Capture One) the pixel size is different.
      I have seen dark (the cropped out area) lines on both side of the image I have took. First I thought I have applied my own presets by accident but after resetting the RAW file looked bigger than 6000x4000 pixels.

      This is the one I have seen within the EVF and also the original is 6000x4000 pixels, but this below is the one I took the cropping out from it and it became a 6187x4000 pixels image
       

      I have tested with other lenses, such as 14, 23, 35, 56 and 55-140 too but I cannot replicate the same thing with any other lenses.
      Do you have any ideas why my X-T2 does this with this specific lens?
      Thank you so much
      Greg

      I want to purchase a lens to expand the reach of my Fuji kit without adding a lot of weight to what I carry when traveling. I am looking at the 18-135 mm lens or 55-200 mm lens. Or I may put this off and wait for some new lens from Fuji.
       
      I currently have the Fuji X-T2 camera body and these lenses:
       
      18-55 mm f/2.8-4 kit lens
      35 mm f/2 lens
      10-24 mm f/4 wide angle lens
       
      I have read mixed reviews of the 18-135 mm lens, especially when paired with the X-T2. The advantage of getting the 18-135 lens would be the freedom to take this lens with either the wide angle or 35 mm for a lighter travel kit. If I buy the 55-200mm, I might end up carrying the 18-55, 55-200 and the wide angle lens (since I like to shoot landscapes).
       
      I am used to using a Canon camera with a variety of lenses. I have the Canon 70D and 4ti camera bodies with an array of lenses. The lenses I tend to use most often are:
       
      18-135 mm STM
      10-18 mm  or 10-22 mm
      28 mm
       
      But when I want to photograph wildlife or BIF - or isolate elements of a landscape - I like using my 70-300mm lens or the newer Tamron 18-270 mm lens.
       
      I am going to be traveling in Europe for several weeks and part of that time will be on a river cruise where I need to carry whatever photography gear I want to use in port. My current solution has been to take the Fuji and one of the Canon cameras, keeping a lens with longer reach on the Canon.

      Any suggestions from people who have used the 18-135 mm and/or 55-200 mm lens?

      Thank you in advance!
       
      (I should perhaps add that I shoot RAW and jpg, so I am willing to do some post processing on the Fuji images but haven't felt the need to do much with the jpg files yet.)

      Loads Raf files and has a terrific Zone edit set.

      I've been shooting for more than 30 years. I'm a recent X-T2 fan boy, coming from Nikon full frame cameras. The Fuji is interesting, and has sparked me again.
      The video coming off it is incredible straight off camera. Lovely skin tones from ProNg and Astia. Thanks Fuji.
