Cons

  • Excessive noise reduction can result in over-smoothed skin detail at high ISO [NOTE: in their X-Pro2 review, dpreview said: “there’s much less of the ‘waxy skin’ effect that we saw at High ISO settings on the previous generation of Fujifilms“]
  • Camera’s full AF capability only available with a subset of lenses
  • Subject tracking, while good, is not be dependable enough for professional use
  • AF performance drops significantly in low light
  • Phase detection region is somewhat small by contemporary standards
  • Choice of three Auto ISO presets more complex than necessary
  • Limited control over autofocus in video mode
  • Battery grip is required for extended video clips and audio monitoring
  • X-Trans color pattern not as widely or well supported as Bayer design
