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 other cameras. But what it does, it does very well indeed.
Here are some photos I’ve taken with the X-Pro2 to show how it performs in real-world shooting conditions. I’ve mixed into this selection of shots using various exposure and ISO settings and 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, and on the X-Pro2’s APS-C sensor, that’s equivalent to a 35mm focal length on a full-frame camera.
Sample Images Taken with a Fujifilm X-Pro2 and 23mm f/2 Lens
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
It was originally sold in black, silver, and graphite models, either as a body-only configuration or with various combinations of kit lenses.
Since I originally posted this, the Fujifilm X-Pro2 has been superseded by the X-Pro3. The X-Pro2 is hard to find in stores (although you can still get accessories for them). But it’s not impossible to find new ones–you just might need to hunt around a bit.
But they do turn up used. My go-to place for used gear, KEH, has some in stock at the time I’m writing this, although obviously stock levels are going to fluctuate, so your mileage might vary. But it’s worth a look.

I'm a professional photographer based in Washington DC. Seven continents, up mountains, underwater, and a bunch of places in between. I've been shooting for 30+ years, and my my photos and time-lapse videos have appeared in a bunch of different publications from major newspapers to magazines and books, billboards, TV shows, professional sports stadiums, museums, and even massive architectural scrims covering world-famous buildings while they're being renovated. You can see some of my travel photography here and here.
