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?

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

    • I'm four months in and love my X-T5, no problems at all.  For me it came down to format choice, APSC.  The brand choice became Sony or Fuji as Canon lens selection seems lacking.  Then read up strengths and weaknesses of the two.  But physically looking at the camera made the difference.  I have XL hands and the Sony actually felt too small to hold.  I preferred Fuji handling but the big difference was the dials.  I could see how to adjust ISO, aperture, and shutter speed without instruction.  Took me back to days of shooting film.  I just wanted to use it.  I don't like wading through menus and I don't have to with this camera.  It has a ton of features I haven't used but I appreciate that I can go out and have fun, taking great stills, and learning the advanced stuff at a very slow pace.  I've only shot a couple videos and have no idea what to do with the histogram.  I'm not sure I care, love the camera.  As for 4 vs. 5, that's hard to say.  I don't want to video of myself so I prefer the tilt screen on the 5.  The resolution increase isn't a bad thing, I trim my shots quite of bit and more res helps with that.  I kinda wanted the latest and hopefully greatest.  But if the dollar savings is enough to help out your lens budget then go for it.
    • Sorry dumb question, I have it sorted
    • Here is a short segment explaining some good and bad things about each of the shutter types Fujifilm uses. https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/exposure-center/types-of-shutters/ Your X-T10 does not have all of the different types, but give each of those it does have a try and see if you like them. Enjoy your new camera!
    • Why is the Monochromatic color item not available in the Image Quality menu on my X-T30II? Thanks
    • Like others have stated, it happens and can happen to any brand make or model. All industries are subject. I have had my X-T5 for 2 months and it is perfect. I come from Canon FF both EF and RF and Nikon for analog, all companies and segments with incredibly high QC rates. This Fuji is the same, from mechanical to software, top marks.  If you look for negative reviews, you will find them. Complainers are 10x more likely to voice an opinion than those satisfied.
