First off: take the grain of salt.

Here is a list of specs send to me by an anonmyous source (thanks). The specs in green are those already rumored previously here on FR & confirmed by this source, while the specs in red are new.

  • 24MP
  • dual SD
  • more than 200 AF points (2/3 are PDAF)
  • Hybrid Viewfinder as X100T
  • 1/8000 shutter speed
  • 1/250 flash sync speed
  • no tilt LCD
  • ISO200-12800

The announcement:

The upcoming X-Pro2 is very likely the real reason behind the huge rebates on basically All X-gear. The savings go up to $900LIST OF SAVINGS HERE… and we now have one more confirmation, that the X-Pro2 is about to come.

After debunking fake rumors (not shared here on FR), that the X-Pro2 will be announced at CES, our sources said back in October here, that the X-Pro2 will be announced on January 15. This date (Janaury 15) has now been confirmed, in public, by Magnum Photos. After leaking two X-Pro2 images, Magnum justifies the removal of the photographs as follows:

Embargo till Jan. 15 2016 due to contract with the camera manufacturer“.
