    10 Reasons Why the Fujifilm X-T2 is (probably) better than the X-Pro2 (Based on Rumors & Fuji Manager Statements) – Fuji Rumors
    Now thats just plain wrong, almost mean-spirited !

    The X-Pro2 will be better because its COOLER !

    First of all : it looks better ! Well, duh ! It really looks like a Leica M. Sort of. You know, the general direction. Especially with the 35mm f2 on it !

    Also: It has a true OVF ! Okay, it would be even MORE cool if it actually was a real rangefinder, but at least it has a real optical viewfinder in the spirit of a rangefinder ! This can for example save battery life.

    I see the X-Pro2 as the top camera for the photography enthusiast who likes to photograph with style. The X-T1 and X-T2 on the other hand are more like workhorses.

    I agree that the X-Pro2 LOOKS more attractive, in a traditionalist way. But not so sure the buyers of today are all that concerned with having their 21st century camera look like a 1953-premiered Leica M-series camera...

    The X-T2's list of refinements sounded impressive to me. But on the other hand, I like a camera that offers an optical viewfinder system as an option.

    The X-Pro is like a Leica M on the outside and a Contax G on the inside.

    Which is awesome.

    reviving the thread - mwahaha - I just got an X-PRO 2 after it being available for a year.
    It covers my needs. It looks great - feels fantastic and I don't need a workhorse, but something I enjoy using!

    I had a chance to fondle the X100F and the GFX50S / GF63mm F2.8 R WR yesterday. Oh my, talk about precision and quality, very impressive. He had a near mint X100T that he was pushing on me for $600, had the grip on it too. I passed but man I wanted it. I'm taking the off camera flash photography class next month, providing I'm not on vacation. Supposedly, the instructor is going to use the GFX50s as one of the camera's. He is also showing how to setup HSS on the XT-2 and X100F.
