Fujifilm X-Pro2 Will Not Be Launched Soon

Fujifilm announced the new Fujifilm X100T point & shoot camera, not the previous rumored Fujifilm X-Pro2. And the Fujifilm X-Pro2 medium format camera was not announced at Photokina 2014.

Do not expect the Fujifilm X-Pro2 to be released soon

Photographer Jordan Steele has visited Fujifilm’s booth at Photokina 2014 and interviewed Torben Hondong from Fujifilm Germany. See below.

From admiringlight.com who interviewed Torben Hondong from Fujifilm Germany at Photokina :


Finally, I asked Mr. Hondong about any news on the long-awaited replacement for the X-Pro 1.

Mr. Hondong said that it was difficult. Shooters of the X-Pro 1 desire the hybrid optical finder, and they are thinking of ways to bring something like the EVF of the X-T1 into a hybrid finder, but that this proves challenging to fit into a body that people expect. To be clear, he wasn’t confirming that an X-T1 sized finder would be in an X-Pro 2, but that the fact that the X-T1 exists makes designing the new finder challenging due to expectations. He mentioned the X100s and T improving on the hybrid finder of the X100, and that Fuji would see how the response to the X100T was to consider the options for any potential X-Pro replacement.

Fujifilm X-Pro1

Before launching the X-Pro2, Fujifilm wants to find out how people will respond to the new hybrid VF of this shooter and what the consumers want or whether an electronic-only viewfinder would be a better choice, just like in the X-T1.

Now Fujifilm X100T is available for pre-order at Amazon for around $1,299 and it will will be released on November 30, 2014.
