Fujifilm X-Pro 2: Does It Worth It? (Lost In Via Del Corso)

lostvdcAs a Fujifilm camera early adopter (during time I got the X-pro 1, X100, X100s, X-E1 and X-E2) I was waiting for the X-Pro 2 to come and when that finally happened I didn’t feel so compelled to trash my (now) old cameras to do the switch.

Long gone are the days of GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome),  so I shall not buy this new piece of electronics because it doesn’t do anything that I can’t do with my actual set up (in particular, with the X100s and the X-E2.)

The only actual point of interest, to me, are the dual-slot card and the weather sealed body: but I never needed it when shooting with a Fujifilm. But there is no point – to me – in purchasing a camera that tries to be an all-rounder while it’s not.

Action shooting needs a DSLR, and if you work in harsh condition, a weather sealed one (and lenses, of course.) If you can’t afford a Canon 1D or a Nikon D4, go for a Pentax K-3 and DA* lenses and you’re done.

Would the X-Pro 2 have being a full-frame, the story would have had a different path, though!
