The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is a camera for those who are happier with a Leica in hand than a whizz-bang DSLR. There’s no messing around with zooms and shooting modes and sounds and menu options. It’s about taking photos, pure and simple.
It’s not a camera for all seasons, and it’s not going to appeal to everyone. It’s larger than you might expect, and it doesn’t have the bells and whistles of some of the other cameras out there. But what it does, it does very well indeed.
Here are some photos I’ve taken with the X-Pro2 to give a sense of how it performs in real-world shooting conditions. I’ve mixed into this selection shots using various exposure settings and ISO settings as well as a mix of subjects in the frame.
These are shot with the Fujifilm XF 23mm f/2 R WR Lens. It’s a 23mm prime that’s the equivalent of a 35mm focal length on a full-frame camera (the X-Pro2 has an APS-C sensor).
You can click on each image to open a full-resolution version if you’d like a closer look. These were all shot originally in RAW (.raf) and processed in Lightroom, most of them quite lightly. I haven’t used any of Lightroom’s optical corrections, such as chromatic aberration or distortion control, but with many of them, I have adjusted things like contrast and brightness, as you normally would with RAW files.

Price & Availability of the Fujifilm X-Pro2
Since I originally posted this, Fujifilm has released the X-Pro3. So the X-Pro2 is now becoming harder to find in stores new, but you can often run across used copies at places like KEH and eBay.
