I don’t know you, but after looking at the first samples and reading the first reviews, I have the feeling that the X-Pro2 delivers so much more than some would have expected.
X-Trans III Rocks :)
RESOLUTION: Fuji said that the new 24 MP X-Trans III MP has the same resoution of 36MP Bayer sensor. And this might be true, since already dpreview tests show how the 16MP X-Trans sensorII has a “Bayer-equivalent” resolution of 24MP.
So that’s the first good news. But there is so much more
High ISO + AF: One of the big surprises was the high-ISO performance, which is just absolutely amazing. It has been pointed out in several reviews, and now also the very Popular German site Chip.de says it in this Video here: “High ISO is excellent, even at 12,800!” Moreover they praise the AutoFocus and say that the X-Pro2 can convince all along the line and will satisfy the needs of every Pro photographer. And if we can trust jonasrask in his review here, the waxy skin tones are gone!
I remember launching a poll time ago, where I asked you if Fuji should go Bayer or keep the X-TransIII sensor. I voted for X-Trans… and after the X-Pro2, I’m even more sure of my choice.
