The wait for the next iteration of the X-Pro series is unique in that it has skipped a generation of the propriety X-Trans sensor, and yes, the X-Pro2 comes equipped with a newly developed 24 megapixels X-Trans CMOS III sensor and of course, a new high performance X Processor Pro Image processing engine.
Some have asked why a skip. Well, Fujifilm like any brand will love to sell more cameras and could have just done an X-Trans II embedded X-Pro 2 but to them the X-Pro 2 is an model that represents the epitome of X-mount, and of course – must present the best of the 80 years old experience that Fujifilm has as a photographic film manufacturer.
Overall, Fujifilm has kept to the rangefinder design of the X-Pro1 but on closer look, one will notice an overall haul to the buttons placement and more on that later.
Fujifilm: Evolution to Revolution.
