From Leo to revelation | Not an X-Pro2 review by Patrick La Roque

So what is it about the X-Pro2 that makes it so compelling? It feels right. For me this means it feels like a documentary camera, something made to disappear and embrace its surroundings—just like the X100 series. The immediate reflex will be to compare the X-Pro2 to its older sibling the X-T1. We ARE talking flagships here after all. And it’s obvious to everyone that this crown will probably be passing from one line to the other for the foreseeable future; but these are two very different cameras, philosophically speaking. I know it’s a strange thing to say about gear where spec sheets are pondered over and the minutiae of technology tends to supersede everything else. But there’s no other way to express it: the X-Pro line differs from the XT line in its aura. And in turn this changes our relationship with it and with the world we intend to capture.
