Fujifilm X-Pro2 Mirrorless Camera Gets Silver Award from DPReview

DPReview published their full in-depth review for the Fujifilm X-Pro2 mirrorless camera. And the new Fujifilm X-Pro2 mirrorless camera gets 83% overall score and Silver Award from the experts at DPReview.

The Fujifilm X-Pro2 is the new flagship range-finder style camera in the award-winning X-Series line. It sports a 24.3 megapixel X-Trans CMOS III sensor and redeveloped X-Processor Pro Engine. The phase-detection system covers nearly 40% of the entire image frame with 77 points, which is beneficial to subject tracking and fast overall AF performance. When paired with the X-Processor Pro, the camera is capable of recording stills at up to 8 fps and Full HD 1080p video at 60 fps, along with quick focusing and overall performance speeds.

Conclusion from DPReview:

The X-Pro2 is a 24MP high-end X-mount camera whose appeal is inextricably linked to its innovative optical/electronic hybrid viewfinder. It offers excellent image quality and some of the best out-of-camera JPEGs on the market, and comes in a well built, elegant body with plenty of direct control. Video is good but not cutting-edge either in terms of quality or supporting features. When it comes to still image quality the X-Pro2 can deliver. Whether or not this is the camera for you depends on whether you find its styling (and predisposition towards prime-lens shooting) appealing, or unnecessarily idiosyncratic.

Good for: Photographers looking for an involved, traditional shooting experience. Anyone who wants a camera with a little style and character.

Not so good for: Sports shooters, dedicated videographers or anyone expecting a DSLR-like shooting experience.
