I planned to pick up another X-Pro2 body but the X-T2 paired with the battery grip gives me a slightly taller hold of the camera - I do have large hands but short fingers.
Since the inside hardware is basically the same, I can expect identical results from both of these cameras. I have noticed the EVF on this camera is brighter, bigger and faster refresh than the X-Pro2, but that could just be my opinion.
This was my first FujiFilm mirrorless camera and received as a gift. I wanted a small capable camera for my bike rides without having to choose from the arsenal of dSLR gear. I’ve always admired my fellow photographer - and friend - Leia Smethurst’s X100 during our coffee visits. This one is actually her original camera. I will never give this one up. I’m planning to buried with it!
This is the camera that really started the whole idea of switching systems after using many of the images in wedding client’s albums.
Be sure to check out Leia’s stunning website - She is a full-time Fujifilm shooter!
This is a professional workhorse that replaces the standard 24-70mm f2.8 on full-framed dSLR bodies. I’ve already put this lens through several weddings and a fun “fashion” shoot with the rock band Hinder. It’s solid, quick autofocus and deadly silent with crisp center to edge.
Just for your info, the “WR” stands for weather resistant, which I need more often than not while shooting professionally. I will say that this baby is going to see LOTS of bread & butter work.
This lens was an impulse buy from my local Bedford Camera store in Oklahoma City. It was just sitting in the used case with a sweet low price. I think most people would shy away from this lens because of the variable aperture and plastic mount but I need a very affordable wide angle - at 16mm (24mm on 35mm frame) gave me the needed angle for basic construction site images.
Let me say that this little lens has paid for itself at least 10 times over just in construction site update projects shot at f10 and no one noticed I didn’t use a full frame heavy camera system.
Currently, its on loan to a budding photographer, my daughter Georgia. Check out her new website Geobgraphie
This is my favorite focal length for environmental portraits and was a staple of my photojournalist work with a 35mm equivalent on a full-framed camera. Mounted on my X-Pro2 and it’s like having a super X100 for street photography.
This is a must have accessory for the X-Pro2. It gives a better finder placement and grip plus a built-in Arca-Swiss compatible tripod mount. The last part is imperative since Vanguard has switched all of their tripods to this reliable mounting system. Worked perfectly with the Alta Pro +2 line.
Honestly, I would like the bottom plate to be another .5 inch taller and I’m very surprised third party suppliers haven’t come out with improved (larger/taller) grips. Maybe even a grip with SD card storage. That option would really help out my buddy Thomas Perez.
