X Pro 2 vs XT-2 (if video is not important)

Recommended Posts

Just gathering opinions on this subject.  Looking to add a second body in  2016 to compliment my ciurent X Pro-2.  For those that have a 2 body setup how important is it to have the same camera?  Also, do you believe that the X Pro-2 will receive the same auto focus capabilities in the upcoming Kaizen firmware?  I'm not sure why it wouldn't considering the "guts" of the camera are the same, correct?

Cheers,

For those that have a 2 body setup how important is it to have the same camera? 

Biggest pros of same bodies: same handling, same user interface, almost all the same.

 

Biggest pros of different bodies: possibility of weight/size optimization together with different lenses, cost savings on body with lesser features which are rare used probably, total pool of features is wider

I'd go for the X-T2. It's superior to the X-Pro2 (except the HVF) and it's even cheaper!

 

Unless you really really want the HVF and Rangefinder style, the X-T2 is the way to go: more features, better AF-C, faster EVF refresh rate and shorter black out time with booster grip, dual USH-II card slot, better heat managment with new batteries (and 3 batteries with grip), 3 axes tilting screen, Panorama Mode (X-Pro2 has not) and so forth.

 

And did I mention you get all this for a smaller price? ;)

 

Moreover, according to Fujifilm, the X-Pro2 will get the new X-T2 AF alghorythm, but it won't include the AF-C Custom Settings, which seem to work really well according to the first reviews. So if you plan to shoot in AF-C, the X-T2 is the best choice.

Not cheaper in the UK (although only £50 more)

 

Regarding 2 different bodies, it depends on the job/circumstance.

 

If I wanted the photos to look exactly the same with minimal effort, having 2 camera of the same sensor generation would be best. (XPro2/XT2 or XT1/10/E2 etc)

 

I recently did an event and used an X-Pro1 and X-T10, different sensors, different lens, different settings and had no issues

    • Hello, it worked!! thanks for your help
    • I don't know whether I've missed something along the way, but here's my view: Firstly, I'm new to the digital world, having used film all the way (still using film as well as plates on occasion). I've always used prime lenses, with zooms being something  of a reluctant inclusion to my armoury. I'm still using the old glass a bit on my X-T5. However, I've found to my surprise that the kit lens, for a start, (the 16-80mm f4) is actually very good. I've also got the 55 - 200mm and the 35mm prime (this being my "nifty fifty". I'm happy with the coverage and happy with the IQ from them all at the middle aperture ranges which I use so much. Time was when I wouldn't have given a zoom much consideration at all, but these lenses aren't letting me down in any way. In fact, I was seriously impressed for once to find a kit lens which was a "keeper" (weather-resistance included!). If someone was starting out, they could get by very easily with that on its own for quite some time, without feeling the need to replace it soon after purchase. I only actually got the kit lens because I had nothing which would speak to the camera, and I wanted the camera to have every chance to show what it could do Given that my most used lenses on my SLRs were the 50mm and 135mm, I had those in effect from the off in one lens. OK, they're not as quick as primes, but that isn't an issue for me. When I bought the X-T5 my intention was to buy a full set of primes over time, but I'm not feeling the need to at the moment. Am I missing something here? Genuine question. Don't be afraid to point fingers and laugh if I am missing something. I'm a big boy and I can take it! But, yes, that is my question and my quandary before I commit any further money in the Fujifil/Fujinon arena. 
    • Tomaz, do you see the flickering indoors with artificial lighting, or also outdoors in natural light ?  When I am at low f numbers e.g. 1.4, 1.8 with a shutter speed e.g. 1/125 and with a scene lit by a fluorescent lamp @50Hz (a simple lamp without an intelligent driver, for example Helvar, that operates at higher frequencies), I see this “flickering” in the EVF like you do. That is caused by the interaction between the frequency of the light source with the EVF refresh rate. You can use Flickerless Shutter Speed Setting to eliminate this effect. 
    • Good morning, people. I'm a recent convert to mirrorless and an even newer convert to Fuji, so please, if my questions appear foolish, make allowances, please!
