    Well, the most exciting new release from Fuji for years is here. I am first in the queue at my local crack dealer and will give my own impressions as soon as. In the meantime here's a real-world view from the estimable Kevin Mullins: Fujifilm X-Pro2 Review by Kevin Mullins

    As more come out, feel free to share them here.

    An interview not a review: Fuji's second coming

    A man after my own heart, especially with his comments about touchscreens and video... ;)

    Since I just bought my X-Pro 1, I probably won't be in the market for an X-Pro 2 for quite some time. But it looks like a great camera. I'll be looking forward to picking one up on close-out in three or four years - barring a sudden and unexpected influx of funds! :biggrin:

    Here we go: First Look: Fujifilm X-Pro2

    It might be a little bit too comprehensive for a First Look, but hey, you've got time, right?

    Looking forward to see how many of the improvements make it into the X-T2.. :D
    (Think I've done pentaprism too long to go to rangefinder... :) )

    (and thus begins the "I need a better computer the raw files are too big / I want 24MP why are the raw files so big" comments.. :) )

    Since the RAWs are smaller than in previous cameras, I doubt that.

    Agreed, cameras with this amount of megapixels and similar file sizes have been around for years now.

    RAW compression is pretty standard these days.

    With Lightroom support finally here, I've added several new samples, including HDR RAWs and Panorama RAWs.
