Marami naman yata...the most interesting is the sensor:

http://photorumors.com/2016/01/15/the-sensor-inside-the-new-fuji-x-pro2-camera-is-made-by-sony-and-other-interesting-facts/#more-78550

Of course sana tutoo na mabilis nga mag AF as claimed by Fuji but then how many times did they claim that before. Actually mukhang substantial upgrade compared to Xpro1...some goodies from X-T1 were incorporated too...and then the version 3 of the image processor is the heart of everything.
Talagang APs-C lang talaga ang Fuji. Kasi pag full frame lalaki yong camera. Yong APS-C nga nila malaki na!!! Sony is the king of bonsai cams.
Too expensive to buy one now. Sony A7rII expensive too. Wala tayong choice kundi mag window shopping sa internet!!!Besides, yong mga cam natin are more than enough for us naman....masarap lang mag GAS if you have the ammunition to fire!!!

Yong Xt1 o kaya na future Xt2 will be more affordable. Kaso lang I am right eye dominant kaya OK sa akin yong X-Ex series or Xpro o kaya X100 series. I will have to wait for awhile hopefully the A7r11 will be cheaper or the Xpro2 will be much affordable after the hype, say, about six months.
Pero palagay ko dapat mga 80K Plus lang yan after a month kasi mga 1700 USD sa B@H...Mahal lang kasi bago pa.

Buti na lang i can still control the itch. Last Dec I almost got the A6000... naka 3x ako pumunta ng store, pero at the back of my mind parang there's something na pumipigil... parang someone is whispering the fuji! Hahaha!

Maganda rin mag hintay para maglabasan muna yong mga issues. Noted sa quirks yang Fuji ha ha ha...yong Xt1 may upgrade na FW...tapos the following days may upgrade uli paramag downgrade ng FW kasi palpak yong bagong FW.

Hmmmm, kamusta kaya ang AF speed and accuracy? Sa mga napanuod kong videos di nila masyadong tinalakay eto.

AF pa rin ang Achille's Heel nito. They way  reviewers seem to just pass through when talking about the actual speed (not just the number of AF points) just makes Fujifilm's constant claim of faster AF every single time they update kind of a joke already.

I was at  the PhotoWorld show at Glorietta today and I was able to handle the Xpro2.   I liked the way the position of the view finder kept my nose from smudging the  rear LCD.  It's nice to be able to breath fresh air!

However, I didn't quite like the position of where  "AF on" button is supposed to be on the right side.  I was forced to  change the grip position of my right hand and  had to move my index finger  from the  shutter button in order to activate it.   Maybe I was doing it wrong.

(Note: My opinion comes from being a Nikon D750 user).

Had the opportunity to test the X-Pro2 last week, not in a trade show environment but outdoors. I'm a former X-Pro1 owner and a current X100 user but I don't consider myself a fanboy. So don't expect any used car salesman sugarcoating sales pitch from me, I'm gonna tell it like it is along with the good and the bad.  I'm very vocal about the camera's quirks and I own a Canon 7D Mark II because the X-Pro1 was a "pagong" while the 7D was a speed demon. Different tools for different jobs.

Here are my observations:

1. You can now shoot RAW above ISO 6400. Settings in the Q menu for the highlight, shadows, etc. could now be adjusted all the way to -4/+4 but for some functions, you can't totally turn them off. The Gen 2 X-Trans sensor was notorious for its too aggressive noise reduction especially with its JPEG engine. Sorry, you can't turn noise reduction totally off if you want full control in post. So -4 it is.

2. The AF is now more responsive, snappier and focuses without hesitation. But don't get me wrong, it's not yet a DSLR replacement. But if you're a previous X-Pro1/X100 Classic owner, you can feel the difference. And I dare say even with the X-T1 having its 4.x firmware update, the new X-Pro2's speed simply blows the X-T1 out of the water.

3. There are now front and rear adjustment dials, and there's an Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right joystick on the rear ala 5DM3 for shifting the AF points.

4. The ISO dial is integrated with the speed dial.

5. I did not notice any waxy skin tone issues shooting at or above ISO 3200.  This is good news but I'll take this with a grain of salt as I haven't scrutinized the files on a larger computer monitor screen.  But based on what I saw from the camera's LCD, so far so good.

6. It now has two SD card slots. Slot 1 is high-speed, Slot 2 is average Joe.  How come? I have no idea but I reckon if they do that, they're gonna have to beef up the camera and it's gonna get bigger than its original rangefinder-style form factor.

7. To get the full benefit of the camera's improved performance, get the new lenses. The old XF35mm f/1.4, one of the original Fuji XF Holy Trinity lenses, is sluggish compared to the newer 35mm f/2. The XF35mm f/1.4 is long in the tooth and needs a Gen 2 redesign.

8. If you're a Fast Finger Freddie and you shoot your camera using back button focusing, no matter how fast you press the shutter button while you're in AF-S or AF-C mode, the camera goes *CLICK* (Kzzt) *CLICK* (Kzzt) *CLICK* (Kzzt).  I compared it with its little brother, the X100T, and I don't know but for some reason the X100T was a tad quicker, it's like doing a Mozambique Drill with the .45 pistol. The X100T just goes *TAK* *TAK* *TAK* and just keeps at it as you quickly press the shutter button. I reckon it may be so because the X-Pro2 requires a bit more time for number crunching since it's handling larger 24mpx files. With the Sony A6000, think Ingram MAC-10. Spray if you want!

9) You can now shoot RAW in either uncompressed or lossless compressed.

10) The X-Pro2's ISO 12,800 output looks way better than the X-Pro1's at the same ISO sensitivity.  I guess the algorithms were tweaked a bit.

My verdict?  I'll be blunt -- I'll wait 6 months before I'll get one because I don't plan on being the beta tester. But then knowing that along with the X-Pro2, the new XF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 monster zoom lens was introduced, I reckon I'm just gonna wait for the X-T2 or its next iteration rather than be carried away with the hype.  Why?  Why would they make a monster lens for sports or wildlife if they don't have a camera body that could keep up with it?  Hmm?  Plus, the X-T2 or what have you with the battery grip extension paired with such a huge lens will handle better from an ergonomic standpoint, not to mention it's probably gonna be cheaper than the X-Pro2 since the X-T series is not their flagship camera, and probably it will incorporate improvements based on experience and user feedback from the X-Pro2.

So there you go, my two cents. It's all really up to you.
