The Fuji X-Pro 2 is a rangefinder-style camera that came to the market in 2016. It has an electronic and optical viewfinder and has the Fujifilm X-Trans III sensor – an APS-C sensor with 24.3 megapixels (more than I would ever need).
The optical finder is perfect – so is the electronic one.
Despite being six years old, the Fuji X-Pro 2’s electronic viewfinder is fast and accurate. I like using the optical viewfinder, though. I have been using DSLRs for years, and experiencing ‘reality’ in the viewfinder is a plus. I have to say, though, that I had to get used to it since all you get is a frame reflecting the focal length of your lens.
Of course, when using the EVF, you have access to all kinds of data—metering, focus points, exposure information, and histograms.
I have used a second-hand Fuji X-Pro 2 with a 23mm f/2 lens for about 2 months, and it works well for me.
I have used a second-hand Fuji X-Pro 2 with a 23mm f/2 lens for about 2 months, and it works well for me. I like that the X-Pro 2 feels like a solid camera in your hands. It feels like a high-quality product, although I have to admit that it is not as solid as my Nikon D750 (which I have sold now). The grip on the Fuji X-Pro 2 is perfect. I have used it for many hours without getting tired. I am never afraid that the camera could slip out of my hands (unlike the X100V or the camera with the worst grip of all: the Fuxi X-E4).
I like the small size and the ability to change lenses; it has a sound autofocus system (although it can be slow when you’re moving subjects); the electronic viewfinder is fast and accurate.
Although it is a niche camera, I think it’s in some ways ahead of its time and will remain relevant for many years to come.
The Fuji X-Pro 2 is a small, lightweight camera that’s easy to carry around. It has a good viewfinder and image quality. The sensor is excellent for shooting landscapes or portraits in low light conditions. The lens on this camera is also very good, with significant bokeh effects.
The battery life is decent as well; you’ll be able to get about 300 shots before having to recharge again (though I would recommend carrying an extra one just in case).
Even an old camera like this one can take great photos when you get to know how it works
The Fuji X-Pro 2 is (still) a fantastic camera in 2022 despite its age. I am sure it will continue to be a popular Fuji camera in the following years. The build quality is excellent. You can tell why it has ‘Pro’ in its name.
I have been using a Fuji X-Pro 2 for about 2 months, and it works perfectly for me. It was a great purchase, and I am very happy with it.
